Fowler PSLA Students Visit The Tech Garden and GENIUS NY Teams

Sixteen ninth grade P-TECH (Pathways in Technology Early College High School) students from the Public Service Leadership Academy (PSLA) at Fowler visited The Tech Garden to learn about startups and drones, and meet entrepreneurs. The students, who are taking courses in computer information science and remotely piloted aircraft systems as part of the P-TECH program, met with software development company Imajion and experienced augmented reality first-hand through Microsoft’s Hololens.

P-TECH offers curriculums in high demand industries with opportunities to obtain workplace learning experiences.

GENIUS NY teams then spent time with the students discussing the numerous uses of drones and what their companies do. The trip concluded with members of The Tech Garden giving each student a quadcopter drone.

Euphony Launches New Product Line; Sound Shadows Creates Sound Art

Euphony, a Tech Garden member and participant in the 2016 Germinator program, recently announced the release of its latest product, Sound Shadows — an internal STEAM initiative to leverage audio technology in the art domain. The company is transforming the text-to-speech industry by modifying the tone and pitch of a synthetic voice. Its audio can reflect emotion, meaning and intent. Euphony’s authentic voices replace outdated robotic avatars. ​

Sound Shadows applies novel technology to transform a customer’s audio recording into a unique, physical sound art experience. A fetal heartbeat, an infant’s first words, favorite quotes, and wedding vows are just a few examples of speech sounds the company has turned into wall art and jewelry. Sound Shadows wants to help people experience sounds they love as real keepsakes. Learn more at www.soundshadowsart.com.
