KITES 2017 Outreach Event

GT ASA will be volunteering at this year’s Kids Interested in Technology, Engineering, and Science (KITES) festival on Friday, March 31st, from 9:30am to 2pm. The event will be held at Scott Elementary School, which is about a 15-minute drive from Tech. All transportation will be provided (i.e. one or more of the current officers will be carpooling everyone), and the school provides a catered lunch for all volunteers.

KITES is a fun annual outreach event in which ASA conducts various demonstrations to small groups to illustrate basic acoustics concepts. These are elementary school students so a deep understanding of acoustics is certainly not required to conduct these demonstrations! We have all the materials and can quickly inform anyone who’s attending for their first time. The more volunteers, the more excitement we can convey for acoustics and engineering!

If you are interested in participating in KITES with us, please fill out this Google Form: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/11Zan37YWb4ubSq-g-d4O_-iuLHKIPb32_7U2ComFSxY/edit
