Music and sounds (and biology) at AHHAA Science Centre in Tartu, Estonia
On April 11th at 18:00, a science café will be held at Naiiv, a culture club in Tartu, focusing on synthetic biology and other topics such as biohacking and genetic engineering. An ERC grantee, Mart Loog, professor of molecular systems biology, will take part in the science café. He will talk about his aim to develop a toolbox of circuit elements that can be used in synthetic designer cells. This activity will emphasize informal interaction and public participation is welcome.
From the 11th to the 15th, several workshops and shows will be held at AHHAA. The ERC=Science2 stand will be located in the lobby informing visitors about the project, next to which the workshops will take place, from 11:00 to 17:30. There will be four different workshops where children can make working rudimentary instruments by using and learning about the physics of music.
The theatre shows fall under the theme of acoustics. They will offer simple explanations of natural phenomena, show how sounds are created, and how decibels and hertz work.’
