Science of Sound:

The Science of Sound Spring Break Camp helps underserved students, grades 5-9, discover the possibilities of STEAM – science, technology, engineering, arts and math – while also improving their creative and problem solving skills. During the three-day camp, students experience music first-hand, through a curriculum steeped in
science. Plastic buckets become drums and garden hoses become French Horns. Kennedy Center teaching artist/educator, John Bertles, serves as the primary instructor. Using a hands-on approach, Bertles demonstrates how vibrations in the air create sound waves, and how those waves travel through the air to bring music to the ear. Students experiment with controlling the amount of vibrations based on their instrument designs, a process that encourages problem exploration from every angle. Utilizing their new understanding, students create different types of musical instruments using recycled materials and trash. The brass, wind, percussion and stringed instruments created replicate sounds similar to instruments found in any music store. Dates TBA.
