Noise Pollution: Experimental measurement of sound levels and qualitative analysis (iStage 2)

Lärmbelastung: Experimente zur Messung von Geräuschpegeln und qualitative Analyse (iStage 2)

We face it everyday: noise. The teaching unit ‘Noise Pollution’ aims at sentisising students for the noise level of their school environment.

For the measurement they use the microphones and apps of their smartphones and try different approaches, including Inquiry Based Learning. The students will have to design the process of their research and specify the methodology they will follow in order to establish a geographic map of the noise pollution in their area.

For this teaching unit the students should be at an age between 12 and 19 years, for certain knowledge in environmental studies, physics, maths, ICT, biology and geography are presumed.

The project is taken from the brochure ‘iStage 2: Smartphones in Science Teaching’ from the topic ‘ears’. The complete brochure can be ordered free of charge (Mail to or downloaded. It was developed by 20 teachers from 14 countries around Europe. The project was proudly supported by SAP.
