Techniquest recently visited Ysgol Rhiwabon, and delivered a Technifest workshop to our students.
During the workshop the students worked a number of maths and logic problems based on the music industry.
The tasks accomplished by the students were:-
- Organise the bands for a festival line up following a set of rules about who, where and when they should play.
- Work out the royalty payment for an artist for a song over a month given the number of sales, downloads, streaming and physical sales of the song.
- Use number patterns to play music, ending in the playing of the Welsh National Anthem on hand bells.
See lots more photos of the workshop in our gallery, here.
