High School Physics lesson by Mike Egan and Vinny Licciardello
Instrument Design and Sound Waves
11th grade Physics 512 students took part in a pilot end of the year project centered around employing design thinking towards a common goal in the field of physics. After learning about sound waves and resonance students were challenged to design their own instrument the could produce 3 distinct notes. As you can see, students adapted in the classroom and learned/strengthened building techniques. The addition of a Design Lab in the High School will prove to be invaluable in facilitating projects such as this one.
