8 p.m.

Special Activities:

  • Music City Tinkering
    During your 30-minute tinkering timeslot, get ready to make waves in Music City USA… sound waves, that is! Using real tools and real materials, we’re providing YOU with the choice of what to make:

    • From banjos to flutes and anything in between, craft your own musical instrument so you can hit Broadway in style as you play some favorite tunes.
    • With just a few materials (and a lot of cutting), you can make a sound amplifier for your phone or tablet to keep the jams playing!
    • Help us kick off our community building project with the Nashville Development Project. Build anything on your own space to add to our ever-growing city and join in on Nashville’s favorite pastime – development!
  • Old School Made New
    Did you know you can create your own record player to listen to all those vinyl hits?! Learn how – with a few tools and a bit of elbow grease – you can bring life back to those dusty LPs.
  • Seeing Sound
    Discover what sound waves “look” like as we use a variety of instruments, such as a Ruben’s Tube, to bring their movement to life!
  • Back to the Moon for Good at 6:15 & 7:15 p.m.
    Get in the tinkering spirit with a show in the Sudekum Planetarium! Narrated by Tim Allen a.k.a. Tim “the Toolman” Taylor, Back to the Moon for Good examines what missions in the 1960s and 1970s taught us about Earth’s nearest neighbor in space, introduces us to some of the teams competing for the largest prize in history (the $30 million Google Lunar XPrize), and presents one possible scenario for our future on the Moon.
