Science

Cambridge Science Centre is offering another free on line show. Again it is available for one week. I have registered the class to access ‘Sonic Science’. A summary of the show is below. It may be a little more challenging than the previous one as it is aimed at slightly older children.

Sonic Science 
Ever wondered what sound is or how it travels? How do we even know a sound is being made? Find out as we use tuning forks, speakers, ping-pong balls, smoke rings, and an oversized model of the ear to explore the world of sound. Introducing concepts including pitch and frequency, states of matter, and human anatomy.

Everything you need is below and both the weblink and password has been sent to via the class dojo. This show is available to you to access for a whole week from Monday 1st June  to Sunday 7th June.
