Rise and Shine Orbit STEM Hub 1/15 Smith St, Summer Hill NSW 2130

Fizzle, crash, boom, bang! Delve into the world of everyday sounds with us in this stimulating workshop and explore the presence and absence of sound, create your own sound maker, and tell a sound story — just to name a few. Through the topic of acoustics, we will also uncover the pedagogical topic of peer group learning in co-constructed environments and reflect on the educator’s impact on group dynamics.


STEM topic: Acoustics


In this hands-on, interactive workshop, you will learn how to create rich STEM learning experiences in your service through the exciting topic of acoustics and use it as a topic through which to teach the outcomes of the Early Years Learning Framework. Activities may include:


  • Explore the world of sound by listening closely to the environment.
  • Learn sound proprieties like loud and quiet, short or long, high and low.
  • Find out the difference between a noise and a bang and a complex tone and a simple tone.
  • Discover the variety of sounds the human body can make by listening to it bubble, crack, squeak, rumble, and crunch.
  • Invent your own noise maker.
  • Learn how to systematically experience and analyse acoustic phenomena with children.
  • Feel the vibrations of sound sources and listen to sounds through solid materials.
  • Invent ways to visualise sound through the vibrations they make.
  • Gather ideas for learning experiences with acoustic phenomena for different stages of development.
