The Universities of Salford and Southampton and ecsite-uk, the UK Network of Science Centres and Museums have collaborated to create a series of dialogue events to engage the public in topical discussion about acoustics. Two activities are being developed, one to discuss 'Soundscapes' (aimed at adults) and another activity addressing 'Young people and hearing damage' (aimed at young people). These events have been developed and will be piloted in May 2008 before the main events take place in summer 2008.
Soundscapes (20 – 40 year olds)
Topics could include:
Young people and hearing damage (8 – 19 year olds)
This would discuss the use of headphones in public places, how noise might damage hearing and the tight to do what you want vs other people’s rights. The main outcome of the event is for the participants to come up with a public health warning to their peers about the dangers of loud music. The primary school age group will be a new age group to develop debate-style materials for. There are many links with the curriculum in both science and citizenship areas.
