Hub Research Engineer to lead STEM outreach event “88 Pianists”

Published: 2nd October 2018

Hub Research Engineer; Preetum Mistry has been awarded a great opportunity to be involved in a exciting community project, working with local primary schools on the initiative “88 Pianists”.

This STEM Outreach event will take place over the next year, led by the University of Cambridge and academics from University of Nottingham.

 The project will address the following questions:

  • In an ever-more digital world, can we still invent and make something physical and unexpected?
  • Can we fuse engineering and art?
  • The world record currently stands at 19 people playing the same piano, but if we could invent mechanical finger-extenders, we could have one person on each note: 88 Pianists!
