From the music that thumps through a listener's headphones to the strains of an orchestra funing up for a performance, science plays a vital role in how we hear and create music. Music examines what music is and how scientific principles help control how it is made, and also delves into the histories and workings of different types of musical instruments. Explore the roots of modern techno music, find out who invented the first synthesizer, and discover how modern electronics have changed the way music is made. Hands-on activities allow a closer look into topics such as how the tension in a drum head helps control the pitch and how opera singers can break glass with only their voices. Experimenting with everyday Science investigates the science at work in our daily lives. Each book in the set provides historical background and how things work explanations that cover earth science, biology, chemistry, and/or physics topics. To build on these ideas and make scientific concepts clearer, each book also features at least 25 hands-on, illustrated experiments that readers can do using simple materials found at home or school.
