SPS Partnering with Northwestern University TIDAL Lab

Volunteers needed: DSP, Music, and Computer Programming for young engineers

As part of  our ongoing commitment to promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in engineering fields, the IEEE Signal Processing Society (SPS) needs your help!

SPS is partnering with Northwestern University’s Tangible Interaction Design and Learning (TIDAL) Lab and several Chicago-based community organizations to support equitable learning experiences that engage students whose voices have been historically marginalized in STEM fields. One of these experiences is TunePad, a free online learning platform that enables the creation of music through computer programming, enabling young people to explore the rich intersection of music, digital signal processing, and computer programming.

Development is underway for a digital signal processing component of TunePad, and we are seeking your expertise to make this effort a success.

Volunteers are needed to:

  • Design curriculum
  • Design and organize activities for a K-12 audience
  • Share their work as guest speakers

Some examples of topics may include:

  • Perceptual Music Compression - MP3
  • Content-Based Retrieval
  • Fundamentals of hearing
  • What made it possible to have really inexpensive CD and MP3 players?

Interested in getting involved in this exciting initiative? For more information, contact:

Thrasos Pappas (pappas@ece.northwestern.edu)

Mike Horn (michael-horn@northwestern.edu)

We thank you for your interest and support!
