Physics Assembly

Two turntables, a mixer, headphones and a bunch of vinyls. Ever wonder how it all works?

Journey with us on a giant DJ history lesson from Edison’s Phonograph to the latest products used. We’ll explore the physics behind the vinyl record, the cassette tape, the compact disc, the MP3 and streaming. Learn how these music mediums created the DJ and how the DJ continues to evolve with technology.

See the relevance of entrepreneurship, math, coding, physics and social justice through the turntables.
