Aimed at 8-12 year olds, 45 minutes.

Developed as part of the ENGINEER project (2011-2014)

This workshop, designed for 8-12 year olds, takes about 45 minutes to complete. In it, the participants build a very simple string instrument. They discover what sound is and the difference between a high-pitched and a low-pitched sound. With this knowledge they can improve their simple string instrument.
