Short description

In this project, students investigate the questions ‘Why Use Sound In Astronomy? To do Art, or Science, or both?’. They will do activities exploring sonification – representing various data as audio – and links between sound and human study of space, inspired by the work of today’s contemporary scientists such as Wanda Diaz-Merced and Nicolas Bonne, among others. It will open up possibilities to students for making science accessible to more people, especially those who, like Wanda, are blind or visually impaired, as well as demonstrating that sonification has a wider impact too.
