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.
