Science Meets Music

Since the focus was on theoretical learning in Science and Culture during the online lessons, the students in Class 4 were particularly looking forward to doing real experiments at school. In an interdisciplinary project involving Science and Music, they explored the subject of “sound” in a variety of ways during the last few weeks.

The students have experienced that sound waves are vibrations that you can feel. They have also been busy learning that sound waves not only travel through the air, but also through different materials. Here you can see them discovering how to make a communication device using plastic pots and string! They have also been measuring and observing the mathematical pattern of our musical ‘Boomwhacker’ tubes.
Finally, they learned with a biological model the structure of the ear and why it is so important to protect the ear.
