The Science behind the Music

What is sound? How is it made? Who’s making that racket? And what are you doing with that carrot? Find the answers to all these questions and more with the Manchester branch of the British Science Association. We will be talking all about sound and vibration, and will be making a lot of noise in the process.

You can try out our hands-on experiments, such as making a speaker out of a plastic cup, and learn how to make and play new musical instruments out of everyday objects like the now famous (or infamous) carrot clarinet.
