STEAM Saturdays Workshop: The Shape of Sound

Saturday, December 14th, 10:00 am to 12:00 pm

Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology, 900 Woodward Avenue

December's workshop theme is: The Shape of Sound!

Experience sound like you’ve never seen it before! What’s the difference between noise and music? What is the colour of a sound? Why do some chords sound pleasant, while others are downright chilling? If any of these questions resonate with you, come down to the museum and learn the answers at a workshop with all the bells and whistles! Don’t worry if music is not your thing, just play it by ear and march to the beat of your own drum. The hands-on activities are sure to strike a chord and a take-home craft will have you changing your tune.

$25.00 per child. Recommended for ages 7 to 12. Pre-registration required. Call the museum at 905-546-4797 or email for more information.
