Rock out to the science of vibrations, sound, and music. Using a range of dynamic experiments, we’ll create a sonic boom, build our own speaker, and use a note to shatter a wine glass. We’ll also create music using a variety of strange instruments including one that harnesses the power of lightning to make music.

Fee: $500 for 1 session, $350 for additional same-day sessions. Travel fees may apply.
