Sound of Science (workshop)

Shows & Workshops
Duration: 60 min
Suitable For: KS2

The Sound of Science workshop is designed for a class of 30 children. It works better in a venue larger than a single classroom if possible, as it makes a lot of noise!


What is a sound? Your students explore the similarities and differences when making noise in a carousel of activities before making their own musical instruments and performing an orchestral masterpiece.

By getting hands-on with a variety of vibrating noise-makers, your students discover for themselves how different objects make different sounds, how these can be changed and how we can use them to make music.  Applying this knowledge, they will perform a short piece of music like nothing you’ve ever heard before!

The Sound of Science Show works in tandem with the Sound of Science Show, but can also be booked on its own.

The programme is tailored to each school and can usually include a mixture of activities for different Key Stages.
