An ENG 100 Design Class will Demonstrate the Art and Science of Bell Casting and Tuning

About the Event

Student teams from an ENG 100 Design course will walk you through each stage of casting and tuning a bell, from the initial drawings, to the pouring of bronze, to the final acoustic characterization studies of tuned bells in the Digital Media Commons' Audio Studio.

You will have a chance to hear the bells performed, and to compare the sounds of the ENG 100 bells with those of the Central Campus Carillon.
