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.
Come explore electricity and magnetism through a variety of experiments with Dr. Mark Lucas. We’ll work with electromagnets, motors, and batteries that act like trains! We will meet in Clippinger 036.
