Catch the Wave!

September 16 & 17 at OMSI’s Oregon Science Festival

Catch the Wave! is an interactive booth with experiment stations to help you learn about electromagnets — what they are, how to control them, and how they are used to record and play back sound waves!

Stop by and play with permanent magnets, circuit-controlled electromagnets, speakers, microphones, and much more!

You can see demo videos of some of the roots of the experiments in this thread on Mastodon.

I wrote a quick post-event blog post, with hopefully more to come.

And you can read the original proposal.
