The exhibit ‘Do the Waves’ introduces you to the formation of waves in water in an interactive way. You can create waves of different heights by moving the lever. This provides insight into how energy is transferred in waves and how you can control the height and shape of a wave.

The energy in waves can be used to generate electricity, making us less dependent on fossil fuels. Understanding the formation of waves is also important for shipping and for designing effective dikes to protect our country.

The principles that apply to water waves also apply to waves in sound and air. Telecommunications companies use waves to transmit signals over long distances. In construction and architecture, sound waves are considered for building acoustics. In hospitals, the body or parts of it are imaged using sound waves.
