Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology presents ‘The Shape of Sound’ S.T.E.A.M. Saturday Workshop

HAMILTON, ON - The Hamilton Museum of Steam & Technology at 900 Woodward Ave. is excited to present ‘The Shape of Sound’ on Dec. 14 from 10 am to 12 noon Tickets are available online for $25.00 per child and pre-registration is required. This is a supervised drop-off kids’ workshop although parents are welcome to stay if they choose.

In December, holiday music and sounds are all around us. Children between the ages of 7 and 12 are invited to join our museum education staff to experience sound like they’ve never “seen” it before! What’s the difference between noise and music? What is the colour of a sound? Why do some chords sound jolly, while others are downright chilling? Participants will learn the answers to these questions and more, at this workshop with all the bells and whistles!
