Science
The Museum of Science and Technology (MOST) in Syracuse, NY offers traveling science shows throughout Onondaga county and beyond. As part of the 2011 Summer Reading Program, the MOST put together a special show called One World, Many Sounds. The presenter, Dustin Angell, brought a number of musical instruments from around the world and used them to talk about the science of sound and music. Dustin played the guitar, both Middle Eastern and African hand drums, small percussion instruments, and a few types of ethnic flutes. Dustin used audience participation, science demonstrations, music, and storytelling to create an engaging and fun educational experience for the children. The MOST also performs traveling science shows with a variety of topics throughout the year at schools, hospitals, camps, scout meetings, and libraries.
