Hero and Project Description: 

Underwood’s innovative teaching idea, “Making Music With Science,” focuses on teaching students about the science of waves and sound through the creation of musical instruments. Students involved in the project will construct their own pipe instruments, which will use sound sensors to gather data and analyze sounds from the pipes. This data will be used to calculate the lengths of each pipe needed to create the various pitches for the songs the students will play. This exercise will connect physics, math, and music together. The incorporation of music is not new to physics, but what makes this project unique is providing the students with a choice in songs to then create instruments to fit accordingly. Underwood believes the real learning will take place in the building of the instruments.
