The Institute of Acoustics (IOA) are running a competition for primary and secondary school children, all about the sounds you can hear.

The primary School Competition is for children aged 7 to 11 years old working individually or in groups of up to four children. They want the children to produce a hand-made drawing, picture, patchwork, collage or similar to illustrate some of the sounds they like to hear and some of the sounds (noise) they don’t like to hear.


The Secondary School competition is for a small team of up to 3 students between 11 and 16 years of age to think about the basics of sound measurements and perform measurements of their own. Students can be from different year groups and classes; however, they need to be from the same educational establishment.


The winning entrant(s) for both the primary and secondary competition will each receive a prize of £25 plus £500 for their school and an engraved crystal trophy.

The closing date for submissions is the 31st July 2022
