How lucky we are here at The Rig!
Last week we met the wonderful Dr Mark Richards – head of Physics outreach at Imperial College London.
As part of our grant from Arts Council England, we wanted to increase our knowledge in regards to sound waves and the conduction of sound and have an expert look at some of our designs.
We spent a marvellous and informative 3 hours with Dr Richards who inspired us with his extensive knowledge on the subject. If only all Physics teachers were as handsome and charismatic, we may have signed up for science sooner!
Prior to this, we had taken a trip to the Science Museum to gain inspiration from the experiments in their Launch Pad learning zone for children. We found a sound experiment very similar to our Oven Tray Headphones that uses a piece of copper rod connected to music that you clenched your teeth around to hear the music through bone conduction.
