PLTW Computer Science Students Learn About Sound

Last week, our PLTW – Project Lead The Way Students learned about physical, digital, and editing sound. Students also learned about mammalian hearing, vibration, wavelength, frequency and amplitude. Students then enjoyed examining the spectrogram, singing into audacity software with a microphone, and recording their favorite songs before editing them.

“PLTW Computer Science empowers students in grades 9-12 to become creators, instead of merely consumers, of the technology all around them. The program’s interdisciplinary courses engage students in compelling, real-world challenges.

As students work together to design solutions, they learn computational thinking – not just how to code – and become better thinkers and communicators. Students take from the courses in-demand knowledge and skills they will use in high school and for the rest of their lives, on any career path they take.”
