Making Sense of Sound

An active investigation of the science of sound – with acoustic high jinks!

Specifically developed to support the new National Curriculum, this highly active drama-based workshop uncovers how we – and other living things – make sense of sound. After exploring the nature of soundwaves and how they behave in different situations and how they can help us make sense of the world, children will teach each other incredible, new acoustic facts in such exciting improvisations as “Escape from the Volcano”, “Terror from the Skies” and “Submarine Shocker”!

Suitable for:
3-5 year olds;
6-12 year olds;
13-16 year olds.

Exploring: soundwaves, acoustic resistance, echo location, the Doppler Effect.

Duration: 1½ hours – one day (depending on how many classes)

Cost: EUR 75 / hour or EUR 170 / day
