Music in Our Schools (March)

March is Music in Our Schools Month. Let's MAKE some music!

  • Music in Our Schools Month
    Music In Our Schools Month® or “MIOSM®” is NAfME’s annual celebration during March which engages music educators, students, and communities from around the country in promoting the benefits of high quality music education programs in schools.
  • Junkyard Jam Band: DIY Musical Instruments and Noisemakers
    his book for teens on up is for intermediate makers. It’s not your “average grab an empty oatmeal canister and turn it into a drum.” The projects are a bit more complex (some involve soldering) and tackle things like circuit bending, making a Droid Voicebox and an electric ukulele from a cigar box.

  • Welcome to the Beginner's Guide to Propulsion (NASA)
    What is propulsion? The word is derived from two Latin words: pro meaning before or forwards and pellere meaning to drive. Propulsion means to push forward or drive an object forward. A propulsion system is a machine that produces thrust to push an object forward. On airplanes, thrust is usually generated through some application of Newton's third law of action and reaction.
  • Propulsion
    Simple demonstration.
  • Rocket Races Handout (NASA)
    I use cardboard or cereal box for the body and bottle caps for wheels.
  • Clothespin Button Racer
    I would use bottle caps for wheels and a bamboo skewer for the axel otherwise this is a good alternative to not using balloons.
