You’ll also receive two instruction guides – one for the scientist and a top secret document for the adult science helper. The easy to follow step-by-step instructions guide the learner through the scientific method while providing open-ended activities to promote further learning. The adult helper’s top secret document contains the science explanation behind all of the experiments and answers to all of the science questions. Best of all, you’ll receive helpful tips and suggestions for ways to work with your child to create an unforgettable learning experience.
Recommended for children ages 7 and up with adult supervision.
What Does It Teach?
Mention the science of sound and most people go blank. Dictionaries state that sound is the sensation that is produced when the organs of hearing are stimumlated by any vibrations that are transmitted through the air or another medium. That sounds like geek talk when we can just say studying the science of sound is very cool. Many people can hear sounds but with our sound science kit you can also feel them and even see them. We've lined up some great activities. Experience a sound wave through the use of a spring, make hand-held music with our Palm Pipes, watch the sound vibrations from a cell phone, walk around the house with the strangest contraption near your ears, and more.
Science Fair Connections
The take-it-further challenges featured throughout the kit are great starting points for any science fair project. With help and guidance from the adult science helper, it will be easy to focus in on any one of the experiments and create a great science fair project.
