The Sheldon Arts Foundation is pleased to offer professional development for educators. The Sheldon SOLID (Science of Learning Instrument Design) Music Project is a STEAM program, begun three years ago with support of the Boeing Company, which combines the creativity of the arts with the STEM disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Teachers will learn how to integrate the engineering cycle into a creative instrument building project for their classroom.
