Experiment: Water Xylophone

By Mei Yee

We did some sound science this week and made Water Xylophones! For this, you will need four things.

  1. Water

  2. Food coloring (color of your choosing)

  3. Wooden sticks (we used wooden chopsticks)

  4. And mason jars (4 or more)

Each of the girls had four mason jars. So, we filled two and then added food coloring. (They both wanted purple).

Then, they each took one of those jars and dumped about even amounts of water into their other three jars.

We then took a pitcher of water to fill the others with various amounts.

After that, they got to play on their xylophones!

They were fascinated by the different sounds.
