Maker Space: Sound Makers

Strum, rattle, tap, strike and pluck! Design a sound maker which can produce a range of different sounds. Consider the properties of materials when selecting materials for your design. Who might use this device and what might their needs be?


Test out your sound maker and see if you can control or change the frequency or perceived pitch? Make improvements to your design and consider what you would need to change to control the loudness or amplitude of our sounds.
