Jazzy Science Projects with Sound and Music

Series: Fantastic Physical Science Experiments

By Robert Gardner

Can you feel the vibrations made by sounds? How does sound travel through air? Are two ears better than one? How do musical instruments produce sound? The exciting experiments in this book will unlock the mysteries of sound and music. Some will even give you ideas for your own science fair. Learn how to make musical notes, how we hear, and much more. All you need are some simple materials, most of which can be found around your home, school, or neighborhood. So grab a candle, milk carton, and radio and discover that physics is fantastic!

"Information is presented simply and clearly. These books will provide the initial knowledge required to begin working on a science project."

Library Materials Guide, Fall 2006

"A great resource for a music or science class. Especially helpful for planning a science fair. Good for independent reading."

Children's Literature

"Each multi-step activity is followed by detailed explanations of expected results and key concepts. The helpful color drawings illustrate experimental setups as well as the scientific ideas."

The Horn Book Guide, Fall 2006

"Robert Gardner has written an entertaining book about sound and music. The text is filled with hands-on experiments and projects that elementary students can easily perform at home or school. Excellent, clear explanations of the science concepts underlying each activity follow each experiment or project."

Science & Children, January 2007

"These experiments are well developed, clearly explained with the answers to the questions posed given in the follow chapter, and can be done with ordinary household materials . . . It is clearly written, with many of the formulas and scientific terms used being explained in context . . . This should be a primary purchase for both elementary and middle school libraries. The experiments can be used both to explain basic theories . . . or as a stepping stone for further research."

TriState Young Adult Book Review Committee, May 2006

". . . excellent topics in the field of physics."

Richardson Independent School District, March 2006

"Great experiments and explanations given."

Delaware County Library System, March 2006

". . . the list of materials stands out on each page and the steps are clearly written . . ."

South Sound Book Review Council, January 4, 2007

"It is quite fascinating and would truly work well as a center when a class is doing a unit on sound."

Association of Region XI School Libraries

"Robert Gardner has written an entertaining book . . . The text is filled with hands-on experiments and projects that elementary students can easily perform at home or school. Excellent, clear explanations of the science concepts underlying each activity follow each experiment or project . . . this book offers a few new ideas for exploring how sound travels and creating matching vibrations . . . Teachers will find this volume very useful when teaching a unit on sound. It could be used to introduce each concept or to enhance and expand an existing school curriculum."

National Science Teachers Association Recommends Web site

"Teachers will find this book useful when teaching the topic on sound."
