sound science

WMS 8th-graders build their own musical instruments as part of their study of wave and sound.

“They’re applying what they learned about the physics of sound in making their instruments,” said teacher Tom Fahsbender. In the end, students must have built an instrument that actually works and is able to be tuned. Their test will be learning to play a song together as a class and participating in the 8th-grade science “Battle of the Bands.”
