Slinky Sound

Music to my ears!

Is this music to your ears? Our world is full of sounds. The science behind sound is just AMAZING. In this super fun video, Dr. Joh explores the science behind sound and how it is created by making her very own musical instrument at home…from a SLINKY! You can try this experiment at home if you have a paper cup and a slinky so get cracking.
What you need:
  • Slinky
  • Paper cup
  • Something to poke a hole in said cup
