Hear ye! Hear ye! Come explore the wonders of hearing and sound!
In-Person In-School Field Trip Description:
Lend us your ears as Dr. I. M. Tuloud takes you into the world of Hearing and Sound.
Actively become the moving parts of an ear. Learn about sound waves, vibration and how to measure sound. Take a secret hearing test, while learning about safety and hearing loss prevention. Explore the world of communication, sign language and what it would be like to be hard of hearing/deaf. Students will participate in both a whole group presentation as well as interactive learning centers.
Video Conference Program Description:
Be prepared to be amazed as we take you on a virtual journey through the ins and outs of the human ear! Did you know that the inner ear is not just responsible for hearing, but it also plays a vital role in your ability to balance and stand upright? Did you know that the tiny hair cells in your ears are actually sensory neurons that allow you to hear sounds waves? Your ears are VERY important so it is not too late for you to learn ways to keep them safe and minimize your chance of hearing loss. If you listen closely at the end of this program, you should be able to hear the unique sounds of each student’s handcrafted rainstick that they will get to keep for many years to come!
