Fun Physics - Exploring Sound
Fun Physics – Exploring Sound
The physics of sound is endlessly fascinating and FUN! In this session, you’ll learn how sound waves work by creating some really cool experiments. With the cup and string experiment you can communicate from one end of the house to the other without even raising your voice. See sound waves move through the sugar crystal experiment and make your own vibrations into music using a “straw flute.”This session will feed into the next two sessions of the day if you want to take a deep dive into music making and expand your understanding of how science and art interact!
