On preview at the Open Day 2018

If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician” A. Einstein

From Pythagoras to Einstein, through Steiner: a biographical, scientific and musical path to learn about interactions between the world of numbers (physics, mathematics, astronomy) and the world of sounds. Since music can focus attention, involvement and motivation, it can also promote the development of the scientific thought, identity, autonomy, competence.

Objectives
– conceive and make new educational paths, experiment with scientific phenomena in order to understand them.
– combine manual activities with cognitive-intellectual activities by building objects to explain experiences.
– challenge our sense of hearing to understand the concepts underlying the physics of sound.
– an experimental and practical teaching method to stimulate curiosity in scientific phenomena as a motivation to learn. 
– conceive and make new educational paths to understand scientific phenomena.
– combine manual activities with cognitive-intellectual activities by making products to explain experiences.
– challenge our sense of hearing to understand the concepts underlying the physics of sound.
– stimulate curiosity in scientific phenomena as a motivation to learn through an experimental and practical teaching method.

Programme
Experimentations carried out with materials easy to find and easy to use about:  
Sound waves, sound sources, sound propagation and sound detectors. Topics:
PYTHAGORAS and mathematics as the basis of musical harmony: the scale that links mathematics and music – The length of chord. 
KEPLER and the harmony of the worlds: -“Harmonices Mundi”: the motion of celestial bodies produces a music which consists of harmony arising out of numbers. – Harmony of the three components: physical, psychic, spiritual world.
NEWTON and the dawn of modern science: – synaesthesia: sound and colour spectrum. – the Newton disc.
EINSTEIN a passionate musician and a symbol of genius for generations: – Quantization of music and matter: a sense of wonder in the scientific tale of Nature. – Einstein’s “treasure”: let’s experiment by playing.
STEINER subject matters that teach perception and listening: – Socializing activities: eurythmy and music – “The essence of music” – “The art of education”.
