Waves are everywhere around us. A disturbance in a calm pond distorts the image reflected on the water surface and sends ripples outwards. The pitch of the siren of an ambulance changes as it approaches us. The way we see, hear and communicate is due to the way waves travel and transfer energy. Waves can transfer energy with little displacement of the medium [sound and water waves], or no medium at all [light waves]. In this workshop, learn about transverse and longitudinal waves, observe waves in action and how they interact with each other. Gain an understanding of the properties of wave, such as wavelength, frequency and amplitude.
