Mathematical Musical Marimbas!

Somebody once said, “Music, mathematics, and art are considered the pinnacles of human creativity.” During the week-long Mathematical Musical Marimbarssummer camp, students will experience connections between these three facets. Each participant will create his or her own personal “marimbar”, a single electronic marimba bar tuned to produce alto, tenor, or bass notes and designed especially for this camp by Dave Harmon of Create It Lab (www.createitlab.org). During the construction of the marimbar, students will discover the mathematical relationship between the bar length and the fundamental frequency of the bar. Connections between fundamental frequency and pitch will also be explored. Furthermore, aspects of electronics will be incorporated as students learn how electronic marimbas (and our marimbars) rely on piezoelectric disks to magnify the sounds of these instruments.  By the end of the week, students will work in small teams to create and perform a short piece as we host our very on “Battle of the Marimbar Bands” competition.

Time: 8:30am – 4:00pm
Age: Rising grades 4-8
Location: Middle School Art Room
