Product Description

Put the STEAM in STEM with this unit! Sound Engineering is a Project Based Learning unit that teaches students the physics and basic concepts of sound engineering, especially as it relates to music. This lesson can be used in Career and Technology classes, Science classes, or Music classes. I have used it with an 8th grade Engineering class.

Students start the unit by reading information about the topic from a handout and answering questions about the reading, as well as defining terms related to sound engineering. In the next phase of the project, they work with a team to utilize a Slinky toy to replicate wave patterns and analyze them. Finally, they work with a team to research and build a musical instrument that demonstrates their learning of the topic. The unit ends with a written reflection on the project.

Files Included with this Unit:

1. Teacher Resources

2. Physics of Sound Reading

3. Introduction to Sound Engineering (research and vocabulary) – includes answer key

4. Slinky Waves – group lab expectations and student worksheet

5. Team sign-up sheet

6. Musical Instrument Building Project – student expectations and resources

7. Team planning sheet (2 versions, color & black and white)

8. Teacher evaluation tracking sheet

9. Project Written Reflection

I hope your students enjoy it!
