Music & Science Programme

Quavers to Quadratics:
Music and Science Workshops

Generously supported by Science Foundation Ireland and Dublin Port Company, we welcome primary school groups (3rd- 6th classes) to this series of hands-on, practical workshops.

What have music and science got in common? Quite a lot as it happens!
Through an engaging series of practical workshops, participants will explore why different instruments look and sound the way they do; and examine sound, resonance and vibration using both musical and scientific equipment.
  • Can we see sound? 
  • How high a note can you hear?
  • Can sound really break a glass?
Our facilitators will visit your school before and after the workshop, collaborating with class teachers, and helping all participating students to get the maximum benefit and enjoyment out of the experience.
Dublin Port Company has kindly subsidised free attendance for a limited number of places for students of DEIS 1 designated schools in the Dublin area. These places will be allocated on a first come first served basis. Please contact education@nch.ie for further information and to book.
