App Review: Sound Uncovered

SOUND UNCOVERED from the Exploratorium is a learning app that explores a wide range of topics related to the science of sound.
A table of contents provides access to fifteen interactives, articles, and videos focusing on different aspects of sound. Each item presents an activity along with background information explaining the science concepts behind the activity.
Librarians will find that students enjoy the short, focused activities. Create a display that combines this app with books and hands-on science activities related to the science of sound. As a class, ask students to work in pairs with one of the activities, then share what they learned.
