Interactive Audiology

If you ever have the notion that the showtunes you sing in the shower sound good enough to win American Idol, an event at the University of Kansas Natural History Museum today will give you a chance to find out. “Singing in the Shower,” a display that demonstrates why our singing may sound better in the bath, is one of several interactive features at the annual Science of Sound exhibit. Visitors can try on a pair of “bat ears” to learn how the animal’s ears work, and exhibits demonstrate how sound travels through solids, liquids and gases. The museum is located on the KU campus in Dyche Hall (1345 Jayhawk Boulevard, Lawrence). Children and adults can drop in anytime between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. through Saturday to experience the exhibits. Admission is free, but suggested contributions of $5 for adults and $3 for children are welcome.
