Designing and Making String Instruments

Posted by: St. Oliver's N.S. | February 4, 2015 Comments Off |

3rd and 4th class enjoyed learning about sound in science and string instruments in music. They then got the opportunity to design and make their own string instruments while investigating the effect of the length and thickness of the elastic band on the pitch of the sound.

One pupil excelled in his investigation which resulted in designing a method to stretch the band to change the pitch of the string, just like a real string instrument. Well done!
