The point of this project would be to show on a basic level, focused toward children, how different kinds of waves function and how they can be manipulated. This will be done through informative posters and demonstrations. The demonstrations will include a sensor that shows how ultrasonic sound can be used to tell the differences in the height of two objects, and a microscope that shows how light waves, mirrors, and lenses can be used to magnify an object. The posters would explain waves that kids have heard of before and are a part of their everyday life: radio waves, heat waves, sound waves, and microwaves. Additionally, the children will be able to take home a print-out of their height (as recorded by the ultrasonic displacement sensor measuring system), as well as easy instructions to build a microscope at home.
