Sonic Magic: The Wonder and Science of Sound

 

Sound has the power to charm, annoy, and even change history. This program reveals the historic force, promise, and potential of sound—and a strange phenomenon called cymatics that has created a new scientific mystery. It explores how sound has shaped our history, introducing us to fields of acoustic ecology and also research labs where sound is eliminating cancer tumors and much more.

What people are saying

Museum camps enabled my grandchild to learn many facts about the brain and have a hands-on experience. She also made new friends. A good way to start summer vacation.
