There is science behind every sound we hear. Sound is made from vibrations in the air. Different materials making different vibrations make different sounds based on the amplification and speed of the sound wave. Here are some of our favorite materials and experiments with sound – Screaming Cup (the stick and slide method), a Thunder Tube, Space Phone, Talking Strips, Singing Rod and Sound Hose. Another favorite is Boomwhackers.
