Singing Glasses

Konos Unit: Attentiveness
Theme: Sound

I'm a little behind on posting this experiment we did on sound.

We experimented with singing glasses. As your wet finger slides around the rim of the glass, it sticks a little which produces vibrations in the glass which are then heard as sound.


Nicholas has so much fun with all things Konos!



Nicholas was proud to make the glasses sing all by himself!



You can change the pitch of the sound by increasing or decreasing the amount of water in the glasses. Nicholas decided to get musical and came up with a little tune all his own.



And now presenting the father and son pair with dueling singing glasses....



What fun we've had learning about sound!
