Come learn about musical instruments and the science of musical instruments. Dr. Kordesch, our local physics of musical instruments expert will be there. Try your hand at making instruments from a wide range of materials, including a PVC flute, recorder or clarinet as well as other options. We will have special guests this evening. Fulbright Scholars from around the world preparing to start their graduate studies in the United States will join us. In addition to making instruments, we hope to learn a little more about instruments from other countries.
We’ll continue our work with the Arduino Microcontroller (see July 20). Don’t worry if you missed the first session. We have volunteers who can help you get up to speed.
Where: Clippinger 036, Ohio University, Athens OH.
What: The Arduino Microcontroller is a small computer that allows one to easily interface with the world: light lights, sense buttons, run motors, …. This open-source design is one of the major fixtures in the modern-day Do-It-Yourself community. We’ll have projects for both beginners and more advanced users. We will have a collection of kits, but feel free to bring your own if you have one.
