The 2012-2013 school year started off with the newest group of Explorers investigating the properties of sound, using supplies as low-tech as they come: drinking straws.

The Explorers spent a session in November 2011 investigating sound waves and how they can be changed and manipulated to make music.

The Explorers kicked off the 2010-2011 school year by making super-cheap musical instruments out of straws.
