Awesome. I can't even imagine these kids shock when you told them about how it works and then let them listen.


These 5th graders may not even remember Mp3 players, as they have been obsolete for some time (let alone CDs, cassettes, and 8 tracks.)

Did they wonder why only one song plays and why they didn't just add 1000 songs per cylinder? :lol:

Keep on educating Don, you taught me a great deal about the hobby.

Thank you for the kind words, Travis. Yes, the students were amazed at the fact that each cylinder contained just one song.
They want to know when I will be back. Perhaps there can be a follow-up lesson with my VV-2-55 in the future. There needs to be some alignment with the curriculum so some planning is needed.
