Explore the science of sound with The Noiseguy
Program at Brandon Library May 29
May 21. 2014 9:57AM
Siouxland Libraries will kick off its free summer reading club for kids – Fizz, Boom, Read – with “Breaking the Sound Barrier” by The Noiseguy Charlie Williams, a vocal sound impressionist who can imitate the sound of planes, trains, and automobiles! This talented performer is also a kids’ comedian, author, and illustrator. His shows are full of energetic fun as he combines comedy with vocal sound effects and encourages even the most reluctant reader to pick up a book and get those words off the page!
What is a sonic boom? Why can’t I hear a dog whistle? What was the first human invention to break the sound barrier? Did dinosaurs break the sound barrier? How do we humans mimic sound? These questions and many more will be answered by The Noiseguy as we explore the science of how sound is produced in nature and by humans!
Space is limited and groups of ten or more must register in advance to attend by calling 367-8710. This free family program will be held on these dates:
