Now Hear This

In this presentation, students learn about vibrations and how changes in their speed or size creates the interpretations we call sound. They’ll hear a sonic boom, experience how a vacuum diminishes vibration, and see a wine glass shatter solely due to sound. A 45-minute introductory version is available for multi-grade reservations.
