Women in Acoustics Luncheon

At each ASA meeting the Women in Acoustics committee hosts a luncheon for those interested in the role that women play in the Society at large. This luncheon is an excellent setting for networking. Those who wish to attend this luncheon must register in advance of the luncheon. There is a reduced entrance fee for students.

To purchase a ticket, please refer to the registration page for the current meeting.

Volunteers needed at the ASA Victoria meeting

Volunteers are needed to help with the “Hands-On Acoustics Demonstrations for Middle- and High-School Students” and the “Listen Up and Get Involved” sessions at the the next ASA meeting. We need at least 15 volunteers to make this a success.

If you can volunteer, contact Keeta Jones kjones@acousticalsociety.org

What will volunteers do?
We expect 30-50 students at each session. The students will come to your table for about 5 minutes in small groups, probably 2-3 at a time. Try to give them hands-on learning experience as they interact with you and the demonstration. We have all the materials and instructions for what to do. We want them to feel excited about discovering acoustics. If you have a demo of your own, you are welcome to bring it!

Round-table Discussion Session at ASA Meeting

At the ASA Victoria meeting, the Women in Acoustics Committee is planning to host a facilitated round-table discussion session. Please see the meeting program.

 

Listen Up and Get Involved Session at ASA Meetings

The Listen Up and Get Involved session, jointly sponsored by the Women in Acoustics committee and the Education in Acoustics committee, is designed to introduce young girls to acoustics through partnership with local Girl Scout troupes during 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. This session requires a large number of volunteers to make it a success. Anyone interested in helping out at an ASA meeting should contact the Education in Acoustics or Women in Acoustics committees. Come and explore this acoustic wonderland at the next ASA meeting!
