Rosh Hashanah School Holiday Programs 2017
SOUND OF MUSIC on Thursday, Sept 21st
Let’s make some waves (of the sound variety)! In this workshop, we will use our sense of sight, touch, and hearing to explore the science of sound. Scientists will learn the physics behind volume and pitch to better understand the music they love, and have a blast composing chart-topping hits of their own. Each of us will design a unique instrument to keep and play until the hills are alive with the sound of SCIENCE!
UP YOUR NOSE on Friday, Sept 22nd
Why does the aroma of freshly baked cookies bring back memories of grandma’s house? Why doesn’t food taste as good when you have a bad cold? Why do I hate the stench of garbage day in NYC in the middle of August? Answer these stinky questions and more as we explore the science of smell during hands-on AND nose-on experiments. Not only will we become olfactory system experts, but scientists will each create a SENSATIONALLY SMELLY SURPRISE to take home!
