Imagine a World Without Hearing
How important are our ears? Without them, you wouldn’t be able to hear your friends speak, or listen to your favourite music. Hearing is one of our most important senses, so it’s important we look after it.
We can hurt our ears in so many ways without even knowing we are doing permanent damage. Simple things like listening to sounds we enjoy like music from our iPod or personal music player can do damage if not done carefully. Find out more about noise induced hearing loss.
Hearing damage cannot be reversed. Hearing loss is not just something older people get.
Cheers for Ears (CfE) is an award winning, interactive education session held in the classroom. It involves -
A computerised hearing loss simulator
Videos and a model ear to show how the ear works
A sound level meter measuring the decibel level of a personal music player, and
Lots of fun!
More than 26,000 students from over 280 schools have already participated. Find out more about how the CfE program can involve you.
