Sound School


sound schoolDuring this Inquiring Minds program, students spend a full week at the Winspear Centre, exploring acoustics, music, and the science of sound through hands-on inquiry. You’ll work with our coordinator to plan your week, and will be given resources to incorporate your Sound School learning throughout the school year.

Dates for the 2017/2018 season will be announced soon!

What is Inquiring Minds?

Inquiring Minds offers an innovative approach to informal learning pioneered by Gillian Kydd and Don Harvie. Intriguing and enriching sites across Edmonton (such as museums, fire halls, civic venues and nature preserves) welcome classes of children to use their site as a classroom for an entire week. Students and teachers use this new ‘classroom’ to engage in learner-led, hands-on, inquiry-based learning and exploration through tours, journaling, and a host of creative activities. This model makes the stuff students learn in textbooks come alive, and has an incredible power to inspire students and teachers!
