For the past 25 years the Acoustical Society of America’s Education in Acoustics committee (EdCom) has hosted a hands-on demonstration session for middle and high school students. These demonstrations are led by members of the Society who introduce students to the exciting world of acoustics. The session includes a hands-on tutorial, interactive demonstrations, and a panel discussion about careers in acoustics.

Typically, nearly fifty students from a local school attend the session. ASA provides a pizza lunch as well as paying for bus transportation to and from the meeting location. This is one of the EdCom’s longest-running and most successful programs,

The primary goals of this session are to…

  1. expose young people to opportunities in science and engineering.
  2. provide students with an opportunity to interact with professionals in many areas of acoustics.
