What will volunteers do?
We expect 30-50 students. The students will come to your table for about 5 minutes in small groups, probably 2-3 at a time. Try to give them hands-on learning experience as they interact with you and the demonstration. We have all the materials and instructions for what to do. We want them to feel excited about discovering acoustics.
We need 15 volunteers to make this a success.
