SciFest – Light & Sound
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.
