Sound Off

Recommended Grade Level: 2nd-8th

Program Description:

We will explore the three things that are needed in order to have sound: they are vibrations, something for sound to travel in, and something to receive the sound. Students will see how matter and energy helps us to explain the phenomenon of sound. We will use musical instruments and the students’ own bodies to teach these concepts. Experiments using tuning forks, drinking glasses, pipes, oscilloscope, dog whistle, balloons, and toys will be used in the program. Your students will be amazed when they see a glass break by using sound waves.
