Supporting: Inspire the Future Through Science and Music! for Bob Moog Foundation



I'm here to share a project that is very near and dear to my heart.  In May 2016 I began working as Online Education Coordinator for the Bob Moog Foundation.  Considering I'm a synthesizer geek with an M. Ed. specializing in online learning, it's the perfect gig!

My first task was to create a new online portal providing support materials to the classroom teachers presenting the Dr. Bob's SoundSchool curriculum.  I'm pleased to report that the portal is 99% complete, and will be ready to roll when the first Dr. Bob's classes start up early next year!

With this significant upgrade to our teacher support, it's time to get new teachers involved with the program.  And that is where you come in!  Your tax-deductible donation will allow us to outfit even more classrooms in even more school districts so that even more kids can benefit from Dr. Bob's SoundSchool.

Thanks in advance if you are in a position to make a donation.  And if you can't, thanks for taking a few minutes to think about friends or colleagues and then sharing this with those who might be in a position to lend their support.


Dr. Bob's SoundSchool, our hallmark education initiative,  is in its fifth year of inspiring elementary school children about the science of sound through music and technology. The 10-week curriculum meets national standards while providing an innovative approach to science engagement, with each lesson being experiential and multi-sensory. The results have been exceptional, and the feedback from the students, teachers, parents and administrators has been enthusiastic, with many requests to grow the program. 

 We currently serve over 1,500 children each year in 75 classrooms in western North Carolina. Our goal for this year is to double the amount of school districts and classrooms that we serve in 2017, including expanding our services outside of our area by providing a pilot program in a high-need Los Angeles school district! With your help we can reach 4,000 kids, many from disadvantaged backgrounds, and fully engage them in the discovery of science by using many concepts inherent in Bob Moog's  legacy of innovation. To achieve that goal, we need to raise $30,000. We ask for your help so that we can inspire more children, not only about science, but about the process of discovery and creative thinking. 

A $50 donation helps provide one child with 10 experiential, innovative Dr. Bob's SoundSchool lessons (that's a mere $5 per lesson!), $1,000 sponsors an entire classroom, delivering over 200 individual lessons. This funding provides for in-depth teacher training and support, custom educational materials including a theremin,  a curriculum that includes comprehensive lesson plans and online supplemental materials, and administrative support. 

Please join us in inspiring the next generation of innovators and problem solvers
