On Tuesday 7-July the Bogota Public Library held its first "Science Heros" for July. In this session Radwa Ali showed the Students the concepts of how the different ways sound can be changed and controlled to become music. Student were able to use Household items to make their own instruments and explained why a thick rubber band makes a lower sound then a thin one when stretched over the same opening. Also why string instruments have openings and " bridges" to help improve the sound quality. Students also were told why it is better to cover the opening of a can with a flexible material ( in this demonstration it was packing tape) as opposed to just hitting the closed side. After several other instruments were made Ms. Ali and the Student played a couple of sounds with their homemade band.
The next "Science Heros"will be held on Tuesday 14-July at 4:00p in the Library. Registration will begin on Wednesday 8- July on the Library web site.
