Pan Flute -2

STEM or STEAM behind the Pan Flute


As you blow the straw, the air in the straw vibrates. So what you are really hearing is the air within the straw. You can change the pitch by changing the length of the straw. A long straw delivers a low note. A short straw delivers a high note.


Kids have the chance to manufacture and outline their own instrument. They can see how the placement of the various lengths of the straws affects the ability to use the flute.


The wind instruments can be decorated to express your tyke’s imagination! They additionally have the chance to compose and record their own particular music.


Kids should measure and compare lengths all together to make their straw wind instrument.
