Women in AV Support InfoComm AV Week 2012

The Women in AV (WAVE) have taken on an outreach initiative to support the InfoComm AV Week, which is October 14 – 20, 2012. During this week, we’re asking members of WAVE to get involved in educating middle and high school students to build awareness of the AV industry.

There are three simple ways to participate in this WAVE initiative. Exploit your resources and choose whichever activity is right for you. If you want to do more than one, that’s even better! AV Week and WAVE’s program provide a prime opportunity to not only generate awareness of the industry, but also enables you to get involved within your local community. By joining this initiative, you will be directly helping to teach youth on how the AV industry can lead to a fulfilling, creative, and inspired career path! WAVE has outlined these as our group’s possible activities:

WORK WITH SCIENCE TEACHERS
Be a guest lecturer and offer lessons on the science of AV, including activities such as identifying the AV in use at their school. InfoComm can provide you with lesson plans, facts and statistics (www.avweek.org/toolkit.cfm) A good resource is the National Science Teachers Association (www.nsta.org)

REACH OUT TO YOUR LOCAL TSA CHAPTER
The Technology Student Association is a nation, nonprofit organization for middle and high school students with a strong interest in technology as well as for their teachers who serve as advisors. Search the TSA website at (www.tsaweb.org/state-delegations) to see if there is a chapter in your state. See if they would like to have you speak to their members during AV Week.

DONATE TO A SCHOOL
Do you have any used AV equipment? Or do you want to raise funds to buy some AV that a local school needs? Check with your local school to see if there is a need and consider how you may be able to help.

DO A TECH TOUR
Check with a local school to see if there is interest from the science, film and theater students to tour your AV facility or a local venue to get a peak of the AV “behind the scenes”.

Please submit your activities, photos and information to Kelly Perkins, WAVE Marketing Director, at kperkins@womeninav.com or by phone at (612) 298-7688. We want to make sure your efforts are recognized in Women in AV press, womeninav.com as well as our social media outlets. For more information please visit the website at www.womeninav.com.
