Year 5 Student, Avani

"I really enjoyed connecting the circuits and being able to hear the sounds when I tapped the instruments. I learned about circuit boards and conductors. I had no idea they could make music!” 


Year 2 Student, Dylan

"I liked being about to hear all of the different sounds from the guitar on the computer as we touched the strings. I learned that the guitar sounds very different on the computer than it does in real life."


Year 1 Student, Noah

"I really like learning new experiments in Science class and building new things."
