Making Waves (Activities & Labs)
Waves is a fun and engaging topic with many relevant applications to explore! Check these activities!
“Making waves” is a phrase used often amongst our students that generally means “making an impact”. This usage directly aligns with the overarching purpose of waves in Physics. Without waves, all the energy discussed in the previous unit would never transfer or be moved from place to place. This affects the things that many students treasure and cannot live without. All their music, social media, selfies, good lighting, internet, television, streaming services cannot function without the application of waves in their daily lives. “Good vibes”, “low vibrational plates”, are more of the never ending verbiage that reaches students daily. Outside of pop culture references, wave technology plays a big part in health & medicine.
