STEAM Challenge 16

BUILD AN INSTRUMENT

MAKE MUSIC!

For this challenge, you will build your own instrument.  Using craft materials, recyclables, etc. (whatever you have around the house) create an instrument. See definition below, but a musical instrument is anything that produces a sound! What could you use to make an instrument? What instrument would you make? Drums, guitar, whistle!?!

YOU WILL CREATE:

  1. A musical instrument.
  2. A short video (Max. 2 minutes) demonstrating your instrument, explaining how you made it, what its made out of, how it works, etc. Be Creative!

musical instrument noun

A musical instrument is a device created or adapted to make musical sounds. In principle, any object that produces sound can be considered a musical instrument—it is through purpose that the object becomes a musical instrument.

Brainstorm

What instrument can you build? What could you use to build that instrument? Could your instrument make different sounds? 

Build

How can you creatively use materials to build your instrument? How does someone “play” your instrument?
