Rockin' the Schools Highlights

“The follow up activities look great! I can’t wait to use the lesson plan on acoustics. I’ve been dying to find a way to sneak in Robert Moog and the development of the synthesizer. We especially liked the demonstration of the recording software”
- Carey Perkins, St. Charles, 7th Grade
“We were able to use almost all the material and information following our visit. We had a great discussion using what we experienced and the students were eager to express themselves concerning the visit. Thank you for allowing us to have such a great experience.”
