Dangerous Decibels

An overview of the Dangerous Decibels Programme

The Dangerous Decibels project is a public health campaign designed to reduce the incidence and prevalence of Noise-Induced Hearing Loss (NIHL) and tinnitus (ringing in the ear) by changing knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of school-aged children.

The presentation is about 50 minutes long and uses the principals of inquiry-based learning to teach the concepts of noise-induced hearing loss prevention. Students discover just how important it can be to “Turn it Down!”, “Walk Away” and how to “Protect Ears”. With the help of scientific tools, students measure sound, learn about decibels, and make models of their own ear. They explore sound, the way it travels, and how they can protect their hearing for years to come!
