Have you heard of Mozart's Magic Flute? Well, let me tell you about the Magic Carrot.
My daughter had a physics project in which she had to create a musical instrument using household items and a little math.
My girl and her lab partner decided on a paper flute. (Or more correctly, the lab partner decided this.) Unfortunately, the paper didn't work so well. Not surprising. So, a new item had to be found. That new item was a carrot.
My daughter did the math. Then she got out a drill and knife. When she was finished, she had something that looked like a recorder. Then the true test: Would it make music?
She blew through it. First time it sounded like nothing but air blowing through a carrot. With a little tweaking of the mouthpiece, it produced a pitch. And when fingers covered the holes, new pitches were produced.
It doesn't sound anything like the flute in Mozart's Magic Flute, but rabbits who happen to be in the area may find the sound (and smell) pleasing, which might lure them in. Which means my dog, Schultz will have something to chase. Pure magic.
If you care to see how a carrot flute is made, go here.
That is the first time I've ever heard of a flute being made out of carrot! Good thing she didn't try a cucumber.ReplyDelete
That would've been messy! I saw a video of them trying a potato. Not sure that would've been so great, either.Delete
That's amazing, dear friend! It sounds like something Bubba would try. I am very impressed with your daughter's ability to figure out how to make music with a carrot. Can she squeeze blood out of a turnip? :) I think your daughter should record an album of show tunes featuring carrot solos. :)
I hope your girl got an A in that Physics class!
Enjoy the rest of your week, dear friend Sherry!
I believe she did get an A. She worked hard on the project.Delete
Enjoy your week as well.
Wow. I never knew you could make a musical instrument from a carrot, but I can sort of understand it in principle. I hope she got an A.ReplyDelete
I believe she did. It was quite a job drilling the hole all the way down!Delete
That vegetable recorder making video was... No words. DS might conclude that vegetables are good for SOMETHING, so I sent the link to him. ;)ReplyDelete
I want a video of your daughter's carrot flute, replete with sound!
I think the carrot flute has been disposed of. Maybe she'll make another. :)Delete
music filled with vitamins!ReplyDelete
I wonder if you can get the vitamins by listening to the music. :)Delete
How clever. I would never have thought of that. Brainy Daughter you have Sherry.ReplyDelete
Yes, she's a smart one.Delete
haha and she could have a snack if she gets hungry. Inventive indeed.ReplyDelete
The multipurpose instrument. Quite brilliant, really!Delete
That sounds amazing and a lot of fun. I hope she and her lab partner get a good grade for it.ReplyDelete
I believe they did get an A.Delete
If it works, it works :) I've never actually tried anything like that before.ReplyDelete
I've never had the desire to do such a thing, but it's kind of a fun concept.Delete
An after the concert, she has a snack! I like the spin you put on this story. Nice job.ReplyDelete
Coincidentally, Schultz had an encounter with a rabbit. That's the next post. :)Delete
Hooray for her! Great analysis and creativity. I"m sure the teacher was impressed too.ReplyDelete
She did good!Delete
I seem to remember hearing of an orchestra who played instruments made of various vegetables.ReplyDelete
Well done to your daughter in doing the maths. I may have come up with the idea of musical veg but the maths would have been beyond me.
I've seen instruments made of garbage, but I've never seen a band of veggie instruments. That would be something!Delete
How cool! It almost makes me miss having school age kids in the house. :)ReplyDelete
They certainly make life interesting!Delete
Wow, impressive. Never would've thought turning a carrot into a musical instrument was possible!ReplyDelete
Not something I would have thought of!Delete
A carrot sounds like a much better flute than a piece of paper- more durable for sure. Sounds like a fun and interesting project- oh and magical too. :)ReplyDelete
I think it actually brought in the rabbit that's in the next post.Delete
Amazingly creative and pure magic. I picture this excitement of making music happen. Congratulate your daughter on my part.ReplyDelete
I'll tell her everybody was impressed with her creation.Delete
That is so cool! I have never heard of this before! Thanks for the video!ReplyDelete
Always something different at my pad!Delete
A carrot as a flute? Who knew. It's amazing what a little creativity will accomplish, Sherry.ReplyDelete
Both of my kids are extremely creative. :)Delete
that is one creative girl you have there!ReplyDelete
Yes, she is.Delete
What Alex said. Hello Sherry. :)ReplyDelete
Hey, Blue. Nice to see you!Delete
It's amazing what a little creativity...ReplyDelete
have a great day
Thanks. You, too!Delete
It was so creative of them to come up with this idea to make flutes from carrots.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have thought of that.Delete
Wow! What a creative idea! A flute made with a carrot and it is working too. She may be planning to become a musician like her mom :)ReplyDelete
She has some musical talent, but none of my kids were ever interested in actually practicing to achieve the level I'm at. :)Delete
