This video comes complete with a practical engineering activity that you can use at home or in a lesson, which can be found here: Download Making Waves - acoustic engineering and sound control and other activities.

"You are working as an acoustic engineer for Sound Designs, a company who work with architects to make sure sound travels well, or can be controlled, in a new building. Your company has been given the task of designing a new school hall for Little Town Academy."

This activity will give students a better understanding of how sound is reflected and absorbed and how acoustic engineers work to give us a good experience of sound in buildings, vehicles, at festivals and more.

This film was developed in partnership with the Nuffield Foundation and Max Fordham engineers.
