Description

The project aims to finalising the design of a Bone Conducting Lollipop, which will be used with children and young people, including, but not limited to, those experiencing hearing loss. It allows a person, even with 'hearing loss', to hear music in their head, through bone conduction. The bone conducting lollipop was formed to unite the experience of hearing sound with tasting a corresponding flavour. The project will explore whether children with hearing loss perceive sounds and their interaction with other senses differently to children with normal hearing.
