Easy Experiment: Make your own straw instrument

Posted March 5, 2015

Beth Harris, the long-time educator and creator of Fort Kits for Kids, has some more easy experiments to share with us.

This experiment, which requires a couple of drinking straws and some scissors, teaches a lesson about sound.

As she writes on her science education blog, which has more information about this experiment: "These are fun to make at a restaurant when you’ve been waiting for a very long time. The wait staff will be highly motivated upon hearing the ... 'delightful music' these instruments produce."

Watch the video to see how it's done. Looking for more? Our easy experiment page has additional activities from Beth.
