On a Tuesday after school a small group of Scouts went to the Apple Store and made some jingles and some icons for their podcasts. We were creating podcasts as part of the Media Relations Badge. So far we had interviewed various different people but we needed to create icons and jingles to make the podcast sound and look more professional.
Ryan was our instructor for the session. Firstly we made the icons for the podcasts on an app with an iPad. Ryan showed us how to work the program and make interesting backgrounds. After 45 minutes of making the icons we went onto GarageBand and made some tunes to go at the start and the end of the podcasts. On GarageBand you could use different instruments to make a cool tune. We also got given a certificate and a nice magnetic badge with the Apple logo on it.
The trip was really fun and I hope that others in the Troop will be able to go sometime in the future.
