curtis_blues_1

Description

Through a combination of creativity, engineering, and ingenuity, students produce unique instruments out of found objects. STEAM topics come alive for students through the use of instruments from the acoustic era of the 1920s and 1930s. By utilizing the engineering design process to imagine, plan, create, and improve the sound properties of their single-string guitars, students conceptualize and explore mathematical concepts such as skip  counting, geometric shapes, abstract relationships between fractions, and their placement on the number line.
