Kid Science: Making (Sound) Waves

Sound waves are a tricky scientific concept, but the basic idea is: the slower a sound wave is, the lower it sounds. Tap on the side of a glass of water, and you create sound waves. If the glass is full of water, the sound wave gets slowed traveling through the water, and the pitch of the sound […]
