Our science of sound workshop is a mix of interactive presentation and hands-on play and experimentation. We offer students an opportunity to conduct scientific experiments on how sound is made (vibration, frequency), how it travels (medium, longitudinal/pressure waves) and where it ends up (hearing, absorption).
We can help support your curriculum for science and music, be part of a STEAM / STEM event, or run as an enrichment activity for the children and teachers to enjoy.
“Thank you for coming along to our school, the feedback from parents and carers has been fantastic and we’ve continued their learning back in the classroom following the workshop. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshops and how practical and engaging they were.”

The equipment the students can use include tuning forks, Chladni plates (creating patterns in sand using vibration), real fruit and veg that can trigger musical sounds, a telegraph key, a theremin and more. Each workshop can last either 1hr, 1.5hrs or 2 hours depending on how many classes you’d like throughout the day.
We also offer online workshops for our facilitators to speak to the class about sound and answer any questions they may have.
