We were excited to start learning about science today. Some of us didn't know what science was about. It is quite tricky to understand, but Elly explained that science is about how things work.
Today we explored a little bit about sound. We made panpipes and discovered that when you blow across the ends of straws, it makes a sound. If the straw is long is makes a low sound. If the straw is short, it makes a high sound. We also talked about how the air is vibrating down the straw.
Check out the video below to hear Matthew explaining how this all works.
