Music and all sorts of merry sounds engage children in sound experiments and live demonstrations showing the properties and transmission of sound waves. Children listen to sounds made with solid materials — from plastic, to metal, to string. Ordinary objects like handheld horns, metal screws, wooden ratchets and beads transform into a story sound-effect symphony. Electronic devices reveal frequency when a pitch-changing machine alters the children’s voices to gruff monsters or happy chipmunks. FOR ...............

Children are introduced to the concepts of refraction, science of optics, and biology associated with sight as they explore the physics of optical illusions. The instructor uses a wide variety of optical illusions like the mirror mirage, twisting copper coils, and convex and concave mirrors to demonstrate how physics can trick our eyes. Children use erasable crayons to create a series of laminated paper illusions and explore the reflections of various mirror forms. FOR ...............
