The Science of Rock ‘n Roll Exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre {GIVEAWAY}

I am super excited for the new Rock ‘N’ Roll exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre! The exhibit will be on display at the Ontario Science Centre until October 26th 2014.

I LOVE music!

I love how it sounds, I love making music and I love how it makes me feel! The science behind music is pretty fascinating and I believe that this will be an exhibit that the entire family will enjoy.

The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll is an interactive exhibition that provides a fresh look at the history of rock from the perspective of science and technology. See how music has shaped the tools of rock – and how those tools have changed the music.

The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll is included with general admission to the Ontario Science Centre.

Science of Rock n Roll
I recently went to the Ontario Science Centre with my son’s school on a Field Trip and I have to say that I found the staff there to be super friendly and helpful! The woman in the above photo was particularly amazing with the children!

Science of Rock n RollWhen my son sees this drum set and realizes that he can sit down in front of them to play the drums, I think we will have a pretty difficult time convincing him to leave!

At the above activity, Ontario Science Centre visitors interact with the table through a series of four pre-programmed Reactable “cubes”. Each of the cubes has five sides that contain different pre-programmed instrumental tracks: guitar, bass, drums, and keys. When the different cubes are placed on the table, different instruments and their respective sounds are triggered. By placing the cubes in different orientations, visitors open up a myriad of musical possibilities. Visitors are able to record what they create and retrieve their composition at home using The Science of Rock ‘N’ Roll backstage pass, which is available onsite for an additional $2.

*All of these stations are interactive during your visit whether or not the backstage pass is purchased. However, if you want to record and retrieve, will need to purchase a backstage pass.
