Physics Masterclass at Westbury-on-Trym C of E Academy

On Wednesday, the Masterclasses Bus visited Westbury-on-Trym School to provide a Physics Masterclass, ‘The Science of Sound’.

Two groups of Year 6 pupils learnt about how sounds are made and detected via a range of activities. The pupils discovered how their ears actually work, using speakers and an oscilloscope to investigate the range of their own hearing, producing their own analogue telecommunication devices and observing stationary waves on various objects, including an electric guitar.

Mr Griffin, Mr Murphy and Mrs Sutcliffe delivered and supervised the activities, along with Sixth Form Physics students, Charlotte and Anthony.
