Straw Oboe

kara, MA | (none)
I learned that the longer the straw the higher pitched sound it will make.


Brittany, OH | (none)
It was very fun to make the straw oboe. The longer the straw the lower the sound.The small the straw the higher the sound.


Kendall, CT | (none)
It was a Blast!! We made Kazoo sounds with the different sized straws!! I think the longer the straw the deep er the sound.

Connor, OK | (none)
Connor taped straws together to make them longer. The sound was very deep and low, like a bassoon. We cut straws to make higher sounds. The result was our own band! We had giggles and fun experimenting with the differences in sound and making predictions of what might happen if we bend the straws, etc. Thanks for the great idea!
