The whole idea of this project was to make the link between biology and physics. As a biologist you want to make a study of a biotope but mostly you don’t register the sound of birds and animals.

But that is not so easy for students in secondary school to use. Therefore the idea of doing that with some freeware programs in an investigation lab.
