SOUNDS AMAZING, Until 17 October 1999
This exhibition comes to us from The Science Centre and Manawatu Museum. The focus is sound and the theme areas explore what sound is, how it is created, how it is measured, how it travels, how it is received and analysed by the ear, and how human hearing can be enhanced and repaired.
Until 17 October 1999
A complimentary exhibition to Sounds Amazing and also on loan from The Science Centre and Manawatu Museum. Some of the different communication technologies are available for the visitor to try and compare. The exhibits range from pictograms to morse code, from tin can phones to fibre optics.
