Students who are interested in sound have a summer camp available to them in downtown Asheville.

The Asheville Museum of Science is serving as co-host for Dr. Bob’s SoundSchool Camps, where campers explore the basic physics of sound and learn the fundamental concepts of how sound is made how it travels.

August Worley, who is a former engineer at Moog Music, is helping students better understand the science of sound during the weeklong sessions. Worley showed students how Dr. Bob created new ways of making sound.

"But also, there's a logical process, I call it the chain of sound. The sound is developed here and then shaped here and then sculpted here and then it comes to your ear in a different form than probably the way it started out," Worley said.

"Well, I'm musician in a band, so just having an understanding of different sound waves and how you make them on a device like these, it really helps you understand how music or sound is made," 13-year-old Zander said.

Bob Moog Foundation members said they want to inspire kids through science, music and technology to become creative thinkers and embrace the process of discovery.
