Have you ever blown across a bottle’s top and wondered how that pleasant sound you hear is made? In this class you will learn about sound waves, vibrations, resonance and pitch as you build musical instruments. This class will also provide an introduction to acoustic engineering. 

Power Up!                           Dan Litchfield

Did you know that renewable power could be the world’s top power source by 2050? In this class, you will build wind turbines and learn about solar and energy storage solutions as you harness power from the wind and the sun and learn about the future of renewable energy



We are still hoping to recruit more parent volunteers to teach classes!

Do you love science? Do you love working with kids?  Then WE NEED YOU!  Please consider volunteering to teach a LAB39 course for the D39 Educational Foundation!  All instructors will receive one free class for a student in their household as a small token of appreciation for their time.
