Summer Library Program

Bring SCI to your library this summer!

Each summer, Science @ Your Site takes science on the road with programming tied to the Iowa Library Services' summer reading program.

2018 SCI Summer Library Program: Global Soundscapes!

What do vibrations look like in slow motion? How do animals use sound to survive? What do sounds tell us about the health of our planet? Join the Science Center of Iowa to meet a team of soundscape ecologists and hear the Earth in a whole new way!

Global Soundscapes introduces audiences to the emerging field of soundscape ecology, which studies the whole range of sound in an environment – including non-biological sounds like cars and airplanes – instead of focusing just on the calls of one or a few species at a time. Through video, audio and audience participation, the program also explores what these soundscapes can tell scientists about the health of the planet.

Contact the SCI Education Team at 515-274-6868 ext. 244 to book a program.
