Making music with electricity

Analog Devices

Students in Mrs. Schalchlin’s fifth grade science class are buzzing to music they have created with electricity. Students have been studying basic circuitry with hands-on experiments as well as using online simulation websites. They worked to make analog devices such as lights and buzzers work, then progressed to digital experiments creating a small working piano with paper clips as inputs to the computers and completing their circuits using themselves as a ground to earth on the Makey-Makey circuit boards.
