The Saint Louis Science Center is proud to host our latest Special Exhibition, Guitar: The Instrument that Rocked the World!
Open to the public from January 19th until April 14th, this exhibition focuses on the history and science behind the guitar, the instrument of ancient origins that has become the centerpiece of American music. Housing interactive experiences, iconic and antique real instruments, and the world’s largest playable guitar, this exhibition has something for everyone!
This exhibition also has the opportunity for LIVE PERFORMANCES!
Volunteer opportunities include:
- Demonstrating and teaching the guitar to our guests! If you play, feel free to share your method with our guests of all ages. Show them scales, tuning, give them practice tips, and play some of your favorite songs! (Not available during live performances)
- The Science of Sound! Using an instrument tuner and tuning forks, demonstrate how notes and pitches work to our guests! See if the visitors can sing or hum in tune! (Possible upgrades include an oscilloscope app to demonstrate frequency and amplitude. Not available during live performances)
A walkthrough and brief meeting with the Special Exhibitions team are required before you are cleared to begin. Training materials available for those interested. Must be able to work 4 hours a day during peak hours, and be able to stand/walk through the majority of the shift.
