Knowledge For the Kids
Black Physicians of Tomorrow provide a large variety of workshops, ranging from sessions packed with STEM-based information by our tutors, to fun activities that help keep kids busy during the weekend. We also include free food as well as giveaways during a majority of our events. Due to covid, our workshops are currently being primarily over zoom, with virtual gift card codes being sent to cover food and item costs when necessary for students.
This Saturday, December 4th from 11 am -2 pm on Microsoft Teams we will take a journey through time to learn about Afrofuturism! Students will get the chance to reflect on what kind of world they envision for future generations of Black youth and to create a guided Afrofuturism-themed painting. The workshop is completely free and all skill levels are welcome! Spots are limited! The majority of supplies will be provided but we suggest you also have on hand: a cup of water, a pencil, an eraser, paper towels or a rag, and cotton swabs.
Registration is located below, as well as an example of what students will be creating in the workshop!

Our latest workshop, "The Science of Sound," will be taking place this Saturday, January 29th from 2pm to 3:30pm via Zoom.
This webinar will cover an introduction to acoustics (the science of sound), allowing us to discover and engage with the fundamentals of music. These fundamentals are harmony, melody and rhythm, and our investigation will allow us to discover how important these elements are in all types of music.
Before the webinar is over, we would like to do a little sound design exercise with the class to demonstrate sound becoming music, and using all the elements that were discussed in the class. We're looking forward to seeing everyone!
