Making sounds with science at Carnegie Library
ISHPEMING — The Carnegie Library hosted the Michigan Science Center on Tuesday where they were learning about sound by making noise in the library.
Due to the reading theme being all about music the Michigan Science Center decided to bring some interesting sound demonstrations for the kids who were able to attend.
They learned about sound waves, vibrations and even got to play with some cool noise making devices. But the overall agenda was to help get kids interested in the field of science.
“We made it our personal goal to reach all 83 counties across Michigan,” said Michigan’s Science Center Director of Innovation and Outreach, Charles Gibson. “The Upper Peninsula was just a natural fit for us to make an annual summer trip and visit a variety of different libraries and youth organizations. This will bring hands on science programming that ultimately enriches the lives of those students. This will hopefully put them on a pathway towards pursuing a STEM career.”
The Michigan Science center will be coming back up in July to do more science related talks with the community.
