Paper Cup Phone

We are learning about sound this month in Science. We made two different phones to test how effective each phone would be. Our first phone used string and proved very effective at transmitting soundwaves. Our second phone used thread and it didn’t work at all. We guessed that this was on account of being outside, wind interfering with the sound waves and not holding the string taut enough.

Have a look at our videos to see how we got on!

Refraction of Light

We explored the way that light refracts when it enters water. The water is a denser medium and the light wave is unable to travel at the same speed meaning a spoon will appear to bend. We used a laser to investigate this further.
