Metronomo by HD

For our third and final action project for the class, Light and Sound, we had to create our own time telling device. We did this project to better understand how  time telling coordinates with light and sound. While doing research for this project, we learned multiple different math concepts that can be applied to the use of Read More…

Light and Sound

“HP working on a spectrograph, 2013” Light and Sound is an integrated math and science course that helps students hear and see the language of the universe by applying the fundamental equation of C= F* λ. The course will be broken down into the following 3 units: Speed of light (C): Introduction to light properties, Read More…

For our second Project as Action, we studied sound. We assembled our own radios and examined uses that they could have in countries around the world. My group looked at Ecuador, and explored how radios could be manipulated for the convenience of alpaca farmers. This way, in cases of extreme weather or day-to-day isolation, they Read More…

Spectrograph AP SM

For my Light and Sound course,  we were assigned to a new and cool project. We were asked to build a spectrograph like design. I used a razor blade, a cereal box, and a 3D lens. When looking at a light it creates a rainbow!

Spectrograph-Light and Sound

In our Math and Science course we are studying the language of the universe through light and sound. Our first unit we studied the fundamentals of electromagnetic physics and mathematics of a rainbow by making a spectrograph. We learned about how rainbows were made and studied the process of graphing it’s intensity and color. I Read More…

Light and Sound – Project as Action 1 (Spectrograph)

For our first project as action in the class “Light and Sound”, we designed a spectrograph. These are devices you can use to see the colors of a rainbow, while looking at a white light source. This project helped us better understand the concept of light, and light refractions. The slideshow below will show you Read More…
