Musical Painting Sounds

There were so many interesting activities at the Google for Doodle in 2014.  One of the many that both of my kids enjoyed was the sound that is coming from a musical painting.
 The crew have set up  different wiring and connected it to a laptop and every time the kids connect the wire to a different line on the painting, it creates a different sound.
 EJ was very fascinated with it.  He was very serious when the  Google crew was explaining it to them.
 I love that the judges were also  present, they  walked around and interact with everybody in every room.
 Rylie met a girl that she was very comfortable in talking to  the whole time we were there.  
 During the activities, the  official photographer was  focusing more on certain students.  He was taking lots of pictures.  I realized at the end that those were the winners.  
 It was a great opportunity not just for our daughter but also for our son. 
  So even though she did not placed during the national/final round, it was still a win/win for them.  We were just happy that  our daughter  got to represent the  state of West Virginia as  the state winner for  the category.
 I encouraged the kids to try for  the 2015 but  they did not want to do it.  I think  it has to do with the fact that they  somehow lost  a guidance for  art in school. My daughter's  gifted  program teacher left and the new one is just starting and also the art teacher has retired so there's really not a lot of art going on in there.
 Maybe next year, they will be inspired and try again.
We will cherish the great memories that we had out in California.  They were just so happy that they were able to be at the Google Headquarters.
