Kids can make some noise as they learn about sound at the Columbia River Exhibition of History, Science and Technology museum in Richland this summer.
Among exhibits is a scream chamber, which is a soundproof booth where kids can scream as loud as they can and then compare the decibel level with their friends.
Nine other interactive stations include a theremin for kids to make eerie sounds without touching the electronic instrument and a vibrating metal plate with sand that changes patterns as kids vary the frequency.
The visiting exhibit is being paid for with a $15,000 grant from Washington River Protection Solutions, a Department of Energy contractor at Hanford.
The museum, at 95 Lee Boulevard, is open 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and noon-5 p.m. Sunday. CREHST is open until 8 p.m. on Thursdays. Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for ages 7 to 17 and seniors.
