Explore-a-Synth is an exciting new offering from the “Electronics Everywhere” family of projects for secondary schoolchildren.

Developed in collaboration with the University of York’s AudioLab (part of their Department of Electronic Engineering), the UKESF is delighted to announce the launch of the Explore-a-Synth teaching tool.

As part of the expansion of our “Electronics Everywhere” portfolio, Explore-a-Synth relates directly to aspects of the Key Stage 3 National Curriculum in England (covering wave theory), including Music, Physics and Computing.

The tool demonstrates the relationships between music, science, technology and engineering, encouraging creativity and exploration, through use of an online synthesiser. Pupils can experiment, compose and learn by creating a variety of sounds to download and use in compositions.

Follow the links below to find out more and try out the synthesiser:

Explore-a-Synth was made possible thanks to support from the Engineering Education Grant Scheme via The IET and IMechE.
