From the music that thumps through a listener's headphones to the strains of an orchestra tuning up for a performance, science plays a vital role in how we hear and create music. Music explores 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 such topics as how the tension in a drum head helps control the pitch and how opera singers can break glass with only their voices.

The Teen Brain

Scientists, educators, physicians, and even some parents thought they had a handle on the teen brain. It was assumed that the adolescent brain was fully equipped with all the machinery available to adults, and capable of functioning like an adult. Experts assumed that the adolescent years provided a period of seasoning - lots of trial, error, and yet more trials - in order to improve decision-making skills. However, as any teen can attest, it's just not that simple. Thanks to new brain imaging technology, scientists have discovered that the brain is going through a virtual metamorphosis during adolescence. There is a burst of new growth, circuits are being molded, and patterns of brain activity during decision-making are far from adult-like. The Teen Brain is a revealing look at the substantial new discoveries associated with the development of the adolescent brain and their consequences on teen behavior.
