Christchurch, 71 Main South Road, Sockburn, Christchurch 8042, New Zealand

About the event

Modern technology means today’s kids – and adults – are exposed to unprecedented levels of noise. Around 800,000 Kiwis suffer from some degree of hearing loss with approximately one in six- caused by noise-induced hearing loss, which is completely preventable.

We will have several fun activities set up including

  • What is Sound? An experiment using tuning forks to show what sound is.
  • Guess that Noise? Do you know how loud some common noises are?
  • Ear Protection: What are ways we can protect our ears from Dangerous Decibels?
  • Coloring-in Station.
