Songs are developed to help students understand and retain introductory concepts in computing, as well as to complement more standard activities such as group work, programming labs, and lectures. These songs are reinterpretations of existing, popular ones, hopefully already familiar. Students are encouraged to contribute to the lyrics, and more recently the music itself.

Data sonification is the representation of data with sound. It can be the first step in data-driven music composition and song-writing, or can be used in information processing. In this workshop I'll introduce the concept of data sonification, show examples of how we have used it to create engaging music and infosonics about climate science, and give a short tutorial on how to sonify a simple dataset using python and garage band.
