Discover the Science of Rock ‘n’ Roll This Summer in Toronto

Ontario-Science-Centre-Rock-and-Roll-Exhibition

JUNE 11 TO OCTOBER 26  When one thinks of science, images of beakers, test tubes and lab coats immediately come to mind. But what about the mp3 player in your pocket, the earphones around your neck, the car radio, or the streaming site on your computer? Science and technology have helped to make our lives more melodic in countless ways, many of which we may be unaware of. The Science of Rock ‘n’ Roll, a new exhibit at the Ontario Science Centre, aims to educate audiences about how the latest tracks by Katy Perry and Justin Timberlake have been touched by technological innovation. From the way music is recorded to its effects on a listener, the interactive display explores the evolution of chart-topping hits from the 1950s to the present day.  —Linda Luong
