Soundscapes workshop at Train World

Grind! Pufff! Sigh! PEEP! Crack! The train stops.

The passengers get off. You can hear fast walking on the staircase. Phew, we caught it just in time! Phweet Phweeeet! The conductor blows his whistle. The train sets off slowly.

When you’re travelling by train, you hear many typical sounds. You ride through various landscapes. A busy city, a flower meadow, maybe a farm... And there are also the sounds the actual train makes! You are in a different soundscape.

During this workshop, you’ll be searching for sounds at Train World. Use the tablet to record them.

Explore the world of trains and create your own soundscape!
