The Epicenter and Idea Fab Labs (IFL) in Santa Cruz have partnered together to create the first-ever kids class at IFL!
Did you know that it’s possible to see sound? In our “Sounds Like…” workshop we’ll explore different ways of seeing and creating sound, from sound waves in water, to dancing grains of sand, to creating art that reflects sound.
Students will first be introduced to the ideas of sound waves and vibrational patterns (Day 1). After exploring different patterns, students will be asked to choose their favorite, which they will then use as the basis for creating a design (Day 2). Students will then work with instructors to bring their design to life using the laser cutting machine (Day 3). They will then be given an opportunity to decorate their designs to best reflect the sound they chose (Day 4).
All work will be displayed at IFL on First Friday in June.
“Sounds Like…” will be limited to 10 students.
Students will make three projects during the 4-day class using the laser-cutting tool. Instructors include members of IFL, The Epicenter, a local schoolteacher, and a physicist from Cabrillo College. For more information and to register for the class, visit our site or IFL.
We're excited to announce that The Epicenter is collaborating with the Santa Cruz Children's Museum of Discovery (MOD). The Epicenter will be at the MOD every Thursday through the end of May from 2:30 - 4:30. Each week we will explore a different topic through art, movement, scientific inquiry, and awareness. Each week we will be transforming the art room through mindfulness and an experience of empowerment. We hope to see you there!
