Roth Mobot to Speak at s.t.e.a.m. Conference

The Upward Bound Math and Science Program, in collaboration and sponsorship from the Chicago Teachers’ Center and Northeastern Illinois University, are hosting the 1st annual s.t.e.a.m student conference Saturday, May 21st, 10:00 AM - 6:00 PM, at Northeastern University.

The s.t.e.a.m (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art/Agriculture/Architecture,Mathematics) student conference is for middle and high school students who attend schools in the greater Chicago land area to foster science, technology, engineering, art/agriculture and mathematics learning through project-based and career-oriented workshop sessions.

Patrick McCarthy, half of the circuit bent duo Roth Mobot, has been invited to speak at this year's conference. His lecture / hands-on demonstration will focus on the intuitive accessibility of  technology, focusing on reclaiming discarded electronics and converting them into unique audio and video instruments.

New Workshop Series at Chicago's ESS

Chicago's Experimental Sound Studio has enlisted Patrick McCarthy — one half of the circuit-bent duo Roth Mobot, to teach a series of five affordable workshops over the course of the summer. Whether you want to drop in once to learn how to construct a contact microphone, or if you’d rather immerse yourself in a comprehensive curriculum of soldering and hardware hacking, we invite you to tailor your experience by enrolling in any combination of these classes.
