How does sound come about? When is it too much? How is sound made? Why does an elephant sound different to a cicada? How do our ears work? How is sound transported?  This is going to be fun! Lots to find out! We make different sounds and figure it out using balloons, water, strings, stethoscopes, tuning forks, ear muffs and much more!
