Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool Summer Camps 2018: Inspiring Kids through Sound, Music, and the Moog Legacy!

Give Your Child A Chance to Explore The Sonic Universe This Summer!

The Bob Moog Foundation will be inspiring children in Asheville this summer by providing two summer camps at the Asheville Museum of Science (AMOS).  Both Dr. Bob’’s SoundSchool Camps, exploring “Science of Sound” (ages 7-10) and “Science of Synthesis (ages 11-13)”, will represent a convergence of science, music, technology, and FUN!  

The week-long sessions will be an expansion of the principles taught through the Foundation’’s lauded educational curriculum, Dr. Bob’’s SoundSchool, which inspires over 1,500 children every year in the Asheville area. 

If your child has been through Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool during second grade, this camp is an extension of that, not a duplicate of it! The camp provides more time to explore new concepts in fun, exciting ways!

Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool Camp || Exploring the Science of Sound, July 16-20, 1-5pm (Ages 7-10):

Join us as we explore the basic physics of sound through a fun, engaging, and experiential journey.

Campers will learn the fundamental concepts of how sound  is made, how it travels, and how it is heard. We will delve into the cool concepts of vibrations, waveforms, pitch, amplitude, frequency, and more all using a breadth of musical instruments, including one of the earliest electronic musical instruments, the theremin (which you play without touching it!). We’ll also be using oscilloscopes and other tools to bring these concepts alive.

The camp will be taught by Brooks Butler, local musician, exceptional music teacher from Claxton Elementary, and a member of the team that created the original Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool curriculum.

The “Exploring the Science of Sound” camp will be offered for one week only, July 16-20, 2018, 1pm-5pm. Fee is $175/week.

Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool Camp || Exploring the Science of Synthesis July 23-27 (Ages 11-13):

Campers will explore how synthesizers work, and how they enable us to sculpt individual parameters of sound!  In this one-of- a-kind camp, we will explore the fundamentals of synthesis, including day-long explorations of the oscillator, filter, envelope, amplifier, and more. We’ll be using small synthesizer modules created by our friends at Little Bits, and we’ll work our way up to exploring the principles through various theremins, synthesizers, cymatics and more.

This fun, experiential camp will be lead by August Worley, former engineer at Moog Music, Inc., and a former instructor in the electrical engineering department at A-B Tech. August is also a long-time volunteer and technical advisor at the Bob Moog Foundation and has assisted with numerous educational events where he always brings fun and insight to the subject of synthesis. 

  Science of Synthesis camp is being offered one week only on July 23rd-July 27th, from 1pm-5pm!

Many thanks to The Asheville Museum of Science, who is serving as co-host for the camps, lending their facilities to assist in our efforts to educate children in Asheville this summer! The camps will be held in their STEM Lab at 42 Patton Avenue in downtown Asheville.
