Sonic Sensation

23 May 2019 - 31 Aug 2019

Experience our sonic world and the sensation of being surrounded by everyday sounds.  Experiment with pitch, test your own hearing, make a movie soundtrack, and step into the ever-popular Scream Chamber!  Sort high and low pitches by hitting colored bells, create sounds by conducting an Invisible Orchestra, and launch a billiard ball to show how sound hitting our eardrums sends signals to our brain.

This exhibition was developed by the Sciencenter in Ithaca, New York.
