Measuring sound

From left, 2011 Bates Summer Scholars Mark Charest ’15 of Westbrook, Maine, and Tyler Jones ’15 of Newport, Maine, work on making “sound” measurements on Garcelon Field. This exercise is part of a course called “Musical Acoustics,” taught by Professor of Physics John Smedley. The Summer Scholars program, an annual accelerated introduction to the sciences and math, builds a community of science scholars from among a diverse group of 10 incoming first-years, including first-generation college students and students from groups traditionally underrepresented in the sciences.
