Product Description
This project is meant to be completed in conjunction with a unit on sound science. After students have a working understanding of how sound travels and the vocabulary associated with sound science, introduce them to how the science of sound applies to music.

Students will explore sound waves made by different instruments, then create their own using their voices. They can then take their sound wave and turn it into a beautiful piece of art! Tackle this project on your own, or collaborate with your science and art departments.

This .zip file includes step by step directions for the project, accompanying instructional PowerPoint and instrument sound files for study.

• Audacity program (free online download)
• A projector and ability to play audio from the computer
• A microphone feed into your computer
o Test your microphone before attempting the project to determine your needs – if the built-in mic doesn’t work adequately or your computer doesn’t have a microphone you can purchase a microphone that will plug into your computer for around $15-20 on Amazon
• Windows Snipping Tool, a pre-loaded program on all Windows computers (Grab program for Mac)
• Microsoft Publisher (or PowerPoint, if not available)
• Capability to print on 11x17” paper
• A light box (or other tracing tool – for the art portion only)
