Mad Science

WASHINGTON — On Saturday, Jan. 11, at 11 a.m. families are invited to a mad science show at Gibbs Library in Washington.

Pitch, Frequency, Vibrations, Oh my!

Participants will be perplexed as they hear light, explore sound as it travels through solids, liquids, and gases, and listen to the beautiful tones of Mad Science resonance tubes.

Take a trip through the jungle as the sounds of several animals are recreated. Find out how hot sound can be as it rises out of the Singing Pipe. After some thunderous applause, the Mad Science Conductor will need help to recreate an indoor thunder storm.
