Partnership Grants chartermark

The Sound of Cambridge is a partnership between CoDE (Anglia Ruskin University) and Parkside Federation funded by a Partnership Grant from The Royal Society.

The project has the aim of introducing younger generations to the importance of sound by studying the acoustics of the built environment. The project is divided into several parts, the first one will include sessions on soundwalking, room acoustics and impulse response capture delivered by Mariana Lopez, whereas the second will require the students to visit sites of their choice to study their acoustic characteristics. Students will also be encouraged to present their results to their peers as well as a team of STEM experts.

Initial findings were presented at the Cambridge Science Festival 2016, where over 300 participants experienced the acoustics of different heritage sites.
