Light & Sound – By Request!

By Request

We look at properties of light & sound… and bring these together so that students can see both concepts are based on waves.

Sound concepts covered:

  • What do sound waves look like? How does this relate to light waves?
  • How does a sound wave change with pitch and increasing volume?
  • And much more…

Light concepts covered:

  • Investigate the visible light spectrum, including colour addition and subtraction
  • Explore luminescent minerals and other objects using ultraviolet light
  • Make coloured shadows and create hovering images
  • Learn about translucent, transparent and opaque materials
  • Operate zoetropes and flipbooks to create cartoons and more…

From absorption to reflection and pitch to volume, your students will gain a strong understanding of light & sound and it’s applications in everyday life.

Suitable for years K-6.
