Steve Spangler Science: Make Your Own Vuvuzela Sound

Love World Cup Soccer? Make your own stadium horn.

The vuvuzela (pronounced voo-voo-zay-luh) is a stadium horn that comes from South Africa. Fans blow the horn during soccer (football) matches to cheer on their team. The horn has a loud and raucous sound that has become controversial during World Cup soccer matches. The horn’s high sound pressure levels can lead to hearing loss after extensive exposure. The sound produced by a lot of vuvuzelas during a match can sound like a swarm of angry bees. Now you can make your own vuvuzela sound at home that won’t cause health issues or anger the neighbors too much.
