Hello, my sweet kids, have you ever found that the underwater sounds are always strange when we swim in the pool? Do you want to know what sounds like underwater? Today, the alpha science classroom will do the kid's science experiment of DIY Underwater Telephone with children. We will listen to underwater sounds and find out the amazing mysteries hidden in sound science through this basic physical science experiment for kid's.
Alpha science classroom：DIY Underwater Telephone You will need
Two plastic funnels
Rubber tubing to fit the funnels
A friend in a pool
Alpha Science Classroom: DIY Underwater Telephone Making Steps
Step 1: The Kids need to fir both ends of the rubber tube with the funnels.
Step 2: Let kids stretch the balloons over the end of one of the funnels, making sure that it is right across the opening of the funnel.
Step 3: The kids need to place the funnel with a balloon into the pool.
Step 4: Let your kids place the other funnel over their ears. Did the kids hear sounds from inside the pool? Have a friend talk to you from under the water. Can you hear them clearly?
Alpha science classroom：DIY Underwater Telephone Why Does This Happen?
Alpha science classroom will reveal the mystery for this kid's science experiment. Sound is produced by vibrations. The stretched balloon picks up vibrations traveling through the water. As the balloon starts to vibrate it amplifies the sound so you can hear.
Whales can send and receive messages through water many kilometers away due to the sound being able to travel faster through water than it does in air. Why is this so? Liquid molecules are packed more tightly than a gas molecules. This means that the vibrations travel faster through liquids than they do through the air (and with less energy loss).
Today, the activities about sound science and physics are over from the Alpha science classroom. Have you found the interesting part of this kid's science experiment, my sweet kids? Please make a DIY Underwater Telephone with your friends and explore more underwater mysteries! Or in the sound science toolkit of Alpha science toys, explore more mysteries about sound science, and grow into the most powerful sound magician!
