    In this recorded professional learning session, Greta Dromgool and educators from the New Zealand Association of Primary Science Educators (NZAPSE) explore fun ways you can learn and teach about sound. With simple activities using easy to source equipment they demonstrate how to engage students in discovering the science behind sound.

    Sound is a fantastic topic to engage students with science and in this webinar there are lots of testable ideas for students to explore both in the classroom and at home.

    This webinar is valuable for both primary and lower secondary school teachers, and also parents and caregivers supporting learning science at home.

    Thank you for all the great ideas!

    You can download the video and slideshow presentation.

    We encourage you to join our discussion about sound, join our Slack forum and see the #primary science channel. In this forum we share and discuss ideas, and share resources.

    I thoroughly enjoyed the webinar because it was very informative. Many thanks for organising these types of webinars because being a primary teacher I am always on the lookout for new ideas for science.
