Activities in this kit offer kids the chance to experience the relationship between vibration, energy, and waves using tuning forks.  The activities can be repeated under varying conditions and are a great way to spark curiosity about wave patterns.

These activities use tuning forks to teach kids (and adults) about the relationship between vibration, energy, and waves. Activities can be used multiple times, and will spark curiosity across learning styles, personalities, and age groups. Reviewers disagree about the quality of the directions, however: one suggests improvising them and saving money by buying the materials independently.
