Seeing Sound - an introduction to Cymatics

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Welcome to Cymatics: the exploration of the shapes of sounds! Our entire reality—even light—is formed from vibration. In this session you will learn how sound effects our world, how even plants and planets make sound, how some sounds stimulate our vagus nerves and encourage immune boosts and healing, a brief history of the study of sound and even some simple experiments you can do with your children to demonstrate the physical nature of sound.

Sound is everywhere—even if you can't hear it—and it is constantly effecting our bodies and our world. Being able to "see" sound drastically changes our perspective of what it is, what it means for us on a day-to-day basis and what it holds for our future. This session comes with some cool projects to do with your class that will change the way your students think about sound.

In this session you will learn how sound effects our world, encourages immune boosts and healing, and some experiments you can do to demonstrate the "physical" nature of sound!
