STEM: Science of Sound Residency (6th-8th grade)The Science of Sound Residency is revised for the 2013-2014 school year and will be presented by teaching artist Aaron Fowler. Using music to introduce and increase students' understanding of the principles of sound vibrations, Mr. Fowler brings science, music and technology together in this interactive residency where students explore the creation of homemade musical instruments, the applications of tone generators and the technology of Garage Band. The residency will also include a show-n-tell session allowing the students to demonstrate the principles of sound and the properties of acoustics they have learned. The content is tailored to the middle school level science standards and indicators, and the activities correlate with the students' textbook, Science Explorer: Sound and Light.

Thank you very much for working with our students this year. As a talented and very approachable adult, you made a positive and lasting impression. You adapted lessons quickly to match learning and emotional abilities. Lessons were fun and full of lighthearted, no pressure, laughter and direction. The kids have left this year with a sense of "I CAN."
