Participants will engineer their own unique musical instruments, learn about the technology needed to play an aluminum foil piano, view visible sound waves under a microscope, and more.

Experience an evening of stand-up science comedy featuring two of A-State’s own, Drs. Virginie Rolland and John Artim!
