We will be giving demonstrations of basic acoustics concepts to middle and high school students who are predominantly African American. Officers will be providing transportation.

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!

Outreach: Family Science Night

Family Science Night at Hamilton E. Holmes Elementary is this Thursday, October 2nd. We will be carpooling from the Love Atrium at 4:45pm, doing 3 demos from 5:30 to 7 and returning to Love afterward. The family science night event brings kids grades K-5 and their families together to learn about different science topics and we are returning for our second year to bring acoustics toys and demos to teach elementary acoustics concepts. If you haven’t attended an outreach event yet, we will have experienced members to guide the event and teach you how the demos work, and no previous acoustics knowledge is required.
