L.V. Rogers hosts digital arts showcase

Students share visual art, movies and creative inventions.

Students at L.V. Rogers and Mount Sentinel came up with some pretty idiosyncratic projects for a digital arts showcase on Tuesday night, including an automated lawn-watering system, an eight-channel MIDI player that makes music out of old floppy disks, and a re-purposed touchscreen computer from a local sawmill that’s been turned into an arcade game.

“These kids blow my mind daily,” said L.V. Rogers teacher Lori Jones, who teamed up with fellow teacher Lindsay Kosheiff to put on the showcase of 60 students’ work.

Jones said the students’ skillsets routinely amaze her, and they’re working on projects she couldn’t even have dreamed of.

“I think we offer a lot of programs that aren’t conventional at L.V. Rogers. We’re at the forefront of technology, we’re not behind.

“Our infrastructure may be behind, but what we’re doing with the kids is forward-thinking.”
