Family Reading and Science Workshop: Can You Feel the Beat?
Pre-register at (734) 764-0480. This free hour-long, family workshop for children ages 6-11 accompanied by an adult is part of the U-M Museum of Natural History’s Family Reading and Science Program. This year’s theme is Just Like Me?: Exploring culture, biology and the human experience. They say music is the universal language, but why? Families will learn what makes some instruments more common than others and why some noises sound strange or get us excited. We will explore how cultural transmission influences music and families will get to make their own instruments.
