Early childhood


Have you ever wondered how instruments make sounds? Or how our ears can hear them?

Discover this (and more!) at Science Time: Music and Sound. Children will explore the surprising science of sound and make their own musical instrument to take home.

Science Time gets little scientists involved in a fun and interactive learning experience. Children work together to solve problems and investigate their exciting world. Each session starts with a question. Children and their caregivers will work together to investigate, discover and share their results. Hands-on experiments, activities and crafts will help children explore the topic further. The session finishes with a demonstration and an activity sheet so you can continue your STEM journey at home.

Come along and rock out with us at Science Time: Music and Sound.
