What is sound? How can sound travel and what does it need to do that? Why do animals use sound, and what for? What other uses for sound are there, other than hearing your friends speak or listening to music? In this class, students will gain the knowledge to answer these questions. This class covers the basics of sound, including learning about the particle model. The class is aimed at students in Years 7 -9 and is useful as a first look on the topic or as revision.
