Description

With this innovative product, students can actually make a paper or plastic cup talk! By rubbing a specially-molded plastic tape, the bottom of a cup is vibrated in just the right way to produce audible speech. The principle is the same as a diamond needle traveling through a record groove. These incredible tapes are sold separately in sets of 12 or as a kit with cups and complete instructions. Assorted tapes say things such as, "Science is Fun" and "Happy New Year". Try using them with our Self-Inflating Balloons for an amazing effect!

Great for the right kids

This is a great demonstration, and cheap enough to send home with the students. It was a bit tricky for the 8 year olds, but older kids had no problem. Some of the tapes were backwards, I think - easily corrected but keep in mind if it doesn't sound recognizable.

These 'talking tapes' are always a hit in my 7th grade sound unit. They really drive home the point that sound comes from vibrations. Then I drag out an old vinyl album to show the kids the grooves to help them understand how we did music 'old school'.
