District 65 Educators Learn Science of Sound, Practice ‘Teacher Magic’

A group of teachers crowds around Jen Lewin, the Northwestern/District 65 Partnership Coordinator at Science in Society. She is spinning a vinyl record like a DJ, picking up speed with each revolution. But, despite the turntable’s recent return to fashion, there are no record players in sight. There’s only a lazy susan – the kind you’d see in a family-style restaurant – and a cone made of a plain sheet of printer paper, rolled and pinned into shape with a sewing needle.
