The summer event “KCG Summer Festa 2015” (Kyoto Prefecture, sponsored by the Kyoto City Board of Education) by the KCG group (The Kyoto College of Graduate Studies for Informatics = KCGI, Kyoto Computer Gakuin = KCG, Kyoto Automobile College = KCGM) On August 8th (Saturday), there are three events for elementary, junior high and high school students at KCG Kyoto Station School and Shohoku School. I touched on cutting-edge IT.
◇ "Let's make our first programming class game" is held at KCG Kyoto Station School.The elementary, junior high and high school students who participated used MOON Block, a visual programming language that can be easily started even for beginners of the program, and tried to make the first game on a personal computer.
The challenge was to create a game where a bear falls down with a beam of apples. Participants were taught by KCG teachers and student staff in computer science (C) and media information departments. , Everyone was able to complete the game and smile.
◇ In the “Animation Voice Actor Experience” held at the Digital Sound Studio at KCG Kyoto Station School, participants had a real experience of “after-recording” that recorded character speech and narration in accordance with character images such as animation videos. I enjoyed the animation production process such as studio recording.This is the first time this kind of event has been held at KCG.It was popular enough to reach the capacity in a short time after recruitment.
The theme is “Kyono Doji Ranbu Hen”, a TV commercial that was co-produced by Gainax Co., Ltd. and KCG Group, which produces numerous anime hits such as “Gurren Lagann”.KCG's mascot character “Kyokotan” walks, runs and flies around the ancient city of Kyoto.In CM, “Aikatsu!The role of Maria Himezato and the role of “Magical Girl War”, as well as the role of “Kyokotan” by Misako Sasaoka, a voice actor active in anime, drama, games, commercials, etc. I challenged.
First, in a general classroom, he practiced voicing under the guidance of teachers and students of the IT voice actor course of the KCG Information Processing Department.First of all, I opened my mouth wide and started to speak out. I actually checked the speed and timing of the lines while watching the commercial.
One person at a digital sound studio went to dubbing using the latest equipment.Some participants were nervous because it was their first studio recording, but when they wore headphones and headed to the microphone, they all performed as “Kokotan”.Parents had their children's “brave figure” on camera.Many participants have a dream of “I want to be a voice actor in the future”.At the event of this day, he seemed to have learned that it was necessary to acquire IT to become a voice actor.
◇ KCG Summer School's usual “Electronic Craft Class” is held at Shohoku School.Participating elementary and junior high school students learned the basic knowledge of microcomputers and the role of electronic components, and then challenged the creation of a “simple noise meter” while soldering.
This workshop is co-sponsored by the Kyoto City Board of Education and Miyako Children ’s Saturday School.“Simple sound level meter” is a device that senses sound and indicates its size with an LED lamp. I prepared an original kit for this day.
Elementary and junior high school students who participated with parents received explanations from Dr. Kubota about basic knowledge about microcomputers, mechanisms of sound level meters, programs, how to use soldering irons, etc., and started work.
While receiving instruction from engineering department (E department) lecturers and student staff, etc., I carefully used the soldering iron and attached the parts.Parents help children and watch over their struggles with warm eyes.All the participants were brilliant and completed the “Simple Sound Level Meter”.The finished product was taken home with a pleasant memory of summer vacation.
