Join Assistant Professor Traci Fox at the PSF!!!


Traci Fox, Assistant Professor, Department of Radiologic Sciences will be leading a session on "The Science of Sound-Can I Hear the Liberty Bell Ring?  

Using the historic Liberty Bell as a reference, participants will learn about the Science of Sound, or Acoustics.

Scale models of the Liberty Bell will demonstrate the quality of the ringing sound before and after the Liberty Bell cracked. The basic properties of sound waves and the mechanics of how a bell rings will be explained with a hands-on interactive activity.

Younger visitors will have the opportunity to become an "Independence Junior Ranger," and everyone can "Ring the Liberty Bell" with a downloadable app.
