The D.I.Y. Science series contains some of our favourite experiments for kids to try at home. They are designed to help school teachers and carers inspire a child’s curiosity in science. It’s time to get hands-on.
In this episode, we learn how to make a musical instrument using some basic items from around the house or classroom.
This resource is suited to Physics students in Year 1 who are learning about sound. It provides a fun demonstration about how sound is made, and how we can use this knowledge to make musical instruments and different musical notes.
