Multimedia & Rock Camp / Biosensor Research

Multimedia & Rock Camp

Educators are turning to unusual ways to get young people interested in school music programs once again. One way is by ‘modernizing’ programs through the use of computers as well as popular music, like rock and roll. University Beat on WUSF TV shows you how USF’s School of Music Education tried this method out with a pair of summer camps that gave middle and high school students the chance to write and perform music, as well as shoot their own music videos.

Biosensor Research

It’s hard to believe, but ten years ago this past spring, Mark Schreiner filed his first University Beat report for WUSF 89.7. We’re celebrating the occasion by revisiting the very first USF researcher he profiled—Dr. Daniel Lim, a microbiologist whose biosensor technology has shrunk, even as its capabilities and the need for it has grown.
