The Rochester Hamamatsu Collaboration
Project Overview
The Hamamatsu Project began at the Rochester After School Academy (RASA). More than 300 students from RASA will commemorate the sister-city relationship of Rochester to Hamamatsu in Japan. The Wiki has already been started, check it out.


Students will:

The Rochester Institute of Technology's Lab for Technological Literacy will provide support and technology to enable and inspire the RASA students. As more organizations join the project, the students' experiences will be exponentially enriched.


Artistic Video Portals
Art for Everyone will work directly with students to build artistic video portals. The first portal is proposed at Edison Tech High school and will be coordinated by Robyn Neill, Bonnie Atkins, Principal of the School of Imaging & Information Technology at Edison, and facilitated by the RASA coordinator at Edison.

The portals will allow high school students to directly conference with professors, universities, and college students worldwide. This project will facilitate such conferences with universities in Japan and the Rochester Institute of Technology. Dr. Gurcharan S. Khanna, Ph.D., Director of Research Computing at RIT, will advise on the project and help to design the infrastructure that will allow video to stream internationally.
