SOUNDS LIKE SCIENCE- Easter Workshop 2022
In the Easter holidays, a group of enthusiastic scientists from Years 3 and 4 came into school for two days as part of an exciting workshop led by Mr Olitungi. We learnt all about the science of sound: sound waves, how they travel, explored different sound waves using an oscilloscope, learnt about amplification and created our own speakers. We also discovered cymatics, which are the patterns created by amplified music. We used graphite and sand to create patterns that moved around to the music. It was fascinating! Finally, we made our own laser shows, by reflecting and projecting laser beams in time to amplified music. It was a memorable, fun experience that we will always remember! Thank you to the Northumberland Community Fund Grant for this amazing opportunity!
