Learn about the science behind sound and music, discover instruments, and create our own crazy instruments and musical pieces!
Do you enjoy listening to music and wonder what it would be like to create your own? Have you ever thought about how a musician or composer imagines new music and designs a new piece of music?
It’s all about those good vibrations! This class introduces kids to the field of acoustical engineering as they design and improve acoustic devices! After experimenting with shapes and materials that reflect and absorb sound, kids use a decimeter to measure changes in volume. Kids use what they know about sound and vibrations to design instruments to make music of their own!
This is an amazing class for nerds who want to understand the underlying science behind sound and music, explore instruments, and discover their inner composer. We’ll learn how sound travels in waves and differing frequencies and how sound travels through air, solids, and water. We’ll also use everyday materials to design and build instruments that we can play and create our own music for.
Nerds will imagine and create amazing musical projects like:
This is a very hands-on class learning and experimenting with the science of sound, and how sound is created and moves through vibrations! Nerds will get to explore “real” instruments and we will discuss the scientific elements of sound and music while building and playing our own musical compositions. We’ll discuss how to create music and the freedom to make your own rules and designs!
Your nerd will build and discover like these nerds have.
