Synthtober: Circuit Lab!

This spooky season, we’re embracing all things spooky, scary, and space-y through the lens of some of the coolest instruments you’ve ever seen — or heard — before!

Join us in Soundbox and learn about the science used by instruments like the theremin and the synthesizer. How do these instruments turn electrical energy into sound? In this program, kids will discover how to make their own synths and theremins using the unlikeliest of materials!

Scotiabank Backbeat provides regular weekend activations for families, children, and general visitors of all ages, including pop-up music performances, hands-on activities, presentations from community partners, and more.
