Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Shake, Rattle, and Roll

Class Description

Dr. Decibel, LASM’s wacky science professor, leads students in an interactive exploration of the world of sound. Your "Junior Sound Scientists" will learn about the anatomy of the ear, experiment with unique musical instruments, and become familiar with key vocabulary terms and concepts relating to sound, such as volume, pitch, and frequency. This cross-circular program can be easily adapted for various grade levels.
