FUTURES was designed to motivate interest in mathematics by showing students that math is the language of the future–and a passport to creative and rewarding jobs in fields ranging from fashion and skateboard design to architecture and space exploration.
Sound Engineering – At a rock concert, Billy Joel is at the piano, but what comes out of the speakers is controlled by sound engineer Brian Ruggles. Saxophonist Clarence Clemons plays at the Hollywood Bowl, as acoustical engineer Elizabeth Cohen demonstrates equipment to test the sound quality. The sound adventure also includes Dr. Amar Bose’s explanation of the inner workings of his amazing Acoustic Wave music system, and a behind-the-scenes demonstration of sound effects created by sound editor Steve Flick. Classroom guest: Academy Award-winning composer Hans Zimmer.
