Sounds of life / Life of sounds

On the occasion of the IYS the Acoustic Research Group of the Politecnico di Bari will organize a number of popular initiatives to promote the culture and the importance of sound in the society and in our life (the “Sounds of life” thread), as well as the knowledge of the way sound propagates and interacts with the physical world (the “Life of sounds” thread). Every day different initiatives will be organized and advertised to primary and secondary level schools and university students, including in particular: open laboratories (with visits and demos); popular science seminars and workshops on the different aspects of acoustics; sound walks around the city to highlight different quiet and noisy soundscapes; concerts and performances.
