An interactive light studio for hearing-impaired children

As reported by ABC News:
P.S. 347 is the city's only public school for kids who are deaf, hard of hearing or the children of deaf parents. In their interactive light studio, however, the sense of hearing is not needed to have fun... The lights in the room react to sound. Not just any sound, but also the pitch of the sound. For the deaf kids, it makes sound visible...

"They can begin to develop some kind of awareness; awareness of how sound can affect things, how it can affect people... In the future, P.S. 347 hopes to expand the technology of turning sound into light for more classroom applications.
