Olson scores grants for ‘Music, the Universal Language,’ and electric guitar construction


Planetary images from the Voyager highlight the notion of the ‘music of the spheres.’

The Kelly Lane Earth and Space Science Center and the National Society for High School Scholars awarded grants last week to Mrs. Julie Olson, MHS science instructor.  The Kelly Center provided Olson a $5,000 award to assist student in the study of the science of music, including the creation of musical instruments using 3D printers, CNC machining, Arduinos, and Raspberry Pi microcomputers.  The NSHSS awarded $1,000 to Olson for student study of the science of music through construction of simple electric guitars, using Didley Kids.  (You know, like Bo Didley.)  Some of the finished products will then be donated to the elementary music program.  Congratulations, Mrs. Olson, on these latest enhancements to your science program!
