Musical Bottles

Sound is the vibration of molecules traveling as a wave through various media. In this demo, students learn how wave amplitude affects the pitch of a sound. They will play different notes on bottles of water to discover the physics behind why instruments can make different sounds.


Mirror Obstacle Course

Students explore the concept of light and reflection using an object they see everyday: a mirror. Here, students will learn what is happening when light interacts with a mirror and how this concept makes mirrors a valuable tool for optical devices as well as everyday life.


Magnetic Field Lines

Magnets are used in many everyday objects, such as TV's, videotapes, and speakers. Not only that, we are also living on one giant magnet - the Earth. All magnets produce magnetic fields, and magnetic field lines are a way to visualize these magnetic fields. This demo will use this phenomenon to demonstrate basic concepts of magnetism.
