27 October 2021, 10 am–4 pm | Family Activity | Bradford Science Festival, The Kodak Gallery Drawing Room, National Science and Media Museum, Bradford ‘What Noise do Ghosts Make?’, workshop produced by Dr Nik Taylor & Ashton Carter. Throughout history ghost stories have described the noises ghosts make, from the rattling of the chains of Jacob Marley, the moaning of the white ladies that roam our great houses to the classic ‘Boo’ of the Scooby Doo spooks. But do ghosts actually make a noise? History is filled with people who claim to have created inventions to help us ‘hear’ ghosts, they range from the very simple to the highly technical, but how do they work? Come and join Dr Nik Taylor and Ashton Carter and explore the strange world of ghosts, technology and acoustics in this hands-on and fun Halloween experience. Try various devices as we explore how sound is made and try our hand at being ghosts and ghostbusters! This free drop-in experience is suitable for ages 6+.
