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, jointly sponsored with the Women in Acoustics committee of the ASA, is designed to introduce young girls and under-resourced community members to acoustics through partnership with local Girl Scouts troupes and after school programs during ASA meetings. During the session, interactive acoustic demonstrations are presented by ASA meeting atendees to the children. This session also provides a great opportunity for researchers and professionals to collect new teaching ideas. Both the middle/high-school and Listen up 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 <> or Women in Acoustics committees <>.
