We are super excited to release our first podcast in our new series, Show Me Some Science! These short podcasts are designed to be used in the classroom or incorporated into your lessons.

In this episode we look at wave interference. When two waves meet they can interact before they pass through each other. They can add up or cancel out and this is know as constructive and destructive interference.
