Listen Up and Get Involved

Building on the success of the demonstration session for middle/high-school students, EdCom has also developed a similar session called Listen Up and Get Involved. This session, now jointly sponsored with the Women in Acoustics committee of the ASA, is designed to introduce young girls to acoustics through partnership with local Girl Scouts troupes during each of the biannual ASA meetings. During the session, interactive acoustic demonstrations are presented by ASA members to the Girl Scouts. This session also provides a great opportunity for researchers and professionals to collect new teaching ideas. Both the middle/high-school and Girl Scouts sessions require a large number of volunteers to make them a success. Anyone interested in helping during one of these exciting sessions at an upcoming ASA meeting should contact the EdCom <education@acousticalsociety.org> or Women in Acoustics committees.
