Mi-Sci’s Traveling Exhibition Hall will feature The Science of Rock n Roll from June 20, 2013 – Jan. 2, 2014. Fun, interactive and educational, this large exhibition tells the story of rock and roll from a new perspective by revealing how science and technology influenced the birth and evolution of the popular art form. The Science of Rock n Roll explores the genre’s history, uncovers the fundamental building blocks of music, demonstrates how instruments work, investigates how sounds are produced, reveals the science of sound recordings, and sheds light on careers in the music business. Best of all, museum goers can re-live their exhibit experience via social media with their back stage passes.
