Workshop proposed by Maine Sciences, member of Le Mans Acoustique.
Kids and adults discover the basics of acoustics in a playful environment by different experiences such as:

  • Recognizing the sound
  • Anatomy
  • Vibrations
  • Amplitude and force of the sound
  • Frequency and pitch of the sound
  • Timbre
  • Travelling waves
  • Sensitiveness and fragility of the organs
  • Curious facts about the sound
