This pack is about music technology and was developed to accompany the Musical Moods mass participation project for National Science & Engineering Week 2011 which aimed to find a new way of classifying online content based on mood.
Activities in this pack are linked to the British Science Association’s CREST Awards scheme at Bronze and Silver level, however they can be done independently of this scheme. Any one of the activities can be carried out on a stand alone basis, for use in part of a session.
If more time is available, organisers might select a set of activities, based on materials and equipment to hand. Audience 4 activities (CREST Bronze) are designed for 11–14 year olds, a further 4 activities (CREST Silver) are designed for 14–16 year olds. Organisers will need to consider the ability range of their particular students. Includes possible extensions for CREST Award projects and teacher's/background notes.
