Science, sound and fair testing

Students are challenged to identify key variables that determine the pitch/frequency produced when a pipe is struck.  Using this information they must then develop a musical instrument of their own design based around straws. When you blow across the top of a straw depending on its length you can generate a note of differing frequences.
