Join Westcoast Women in Engineering, Science and Technology (WWEST) as we show off our Sound Engineering Software for Kids, Tune Twister! This experience will be available all day on May 13th. With the app, kids in grades 4-8 can learn about the science of sound by using the app to manipulate music tracks. With its dynamic interface, the app demonstrates how acoustics are affected depending on the digital effects that are applied to music. Kids will learn about electronic audio filters, waveforms, frequency, pitch and how speed impacts sound. Drop in any time!
Here’s what kids are saying about Tune Twister:
“It has a simple layout and is easy to use.”
“You can quickly edit music. I like how easy it is.”
“I like the songs!”
“Great design. You can see the sound waves and slow down/speed it up.”
WWEST stands for Westcoast Women in Engineering, Science and Technology, a non-profit group operating at Simon Fraser University under the NSERC Chair for Women in Science and Engineering, Dr. Lesley Shannon.
