A Free Enrichment Day

Saturday, February 24 — 9 a.m. to noon

Are you a curious young person in 4th, 5th, or 6th grade? Do you ever wonder about how sound is produced and how sound waves travel?

Perhaps you are a young person who enjoys looking at buildings, particularly those that are unusual in structure and design, and wondering about the geometric principles that make them pleasing to the eye? If so, we invite you to take part in our free enrichment day, Saturday, February 24, from 9 a.m. to noon at Trinity School at Meadow View.

The first half of the morning, participants will examine sound and talk about how it is produced. Boys and girls will experiement with tone and pitch and will create their own musical instrument as a way to put their new knowledge into practice.

The second half of the morning boys and girls will observe and identify geometric principles that architects use to create beautiful buildings. Participants will build a hyperbolic paraboloid, the shape used to construct rooflines on famous structures such as the Sydney Opera House in Australia, and the Olympic Velendrome in London.
