Do You Have Wavy Air?
We are surrounded by waves all the time. Some of the waves are light, some are sound. In this activity we will explore sound waves. Beginning with a thunderous introduction we will measure the speed of sound, make a cheap amplifier, move objects with sound, and create some beautiful music using science as our guide. Come on out and become attuned to the science of acoustics as we sound off to thunderous applause! Enough with the bad puns??
