ELEVATE - Outreach

ASEF and ASC 2022 are planning ELEVATE Outreach events to occur prior to and during the ASC 2022 conference. Please check back for updates on these events.

On Thursday October 20, 2022 (the Thursday before the Applied Superconductivity Conference), ASEF will demonstrate superconductivity at UH Mānoa to students and faculty at UH, to high-school and college educators (through AAPT), and, remotely, to the wider community. A one-hour lecture on superconductivity will begin at 3 p.m. After 4 p.m., there will be a variety of demonstrations with particular emphasis on demonstrations that can be used in the classroom to illustrate important principles but also including rides on the IEEE superconducting levitator. Kits for use in classrooms will be provided to educators who pre-register for the colloquium.

The Applied Superconductivity Educational Foundation, ASEF Science Friday public outreach event will be held at the lush Hawaii Convention Center on Friday, October 28, 2022, from 12:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in Kamehameha Exhibit Hall II-III on the last day of the 2022 Applied Superconductivity Conference. This event, open to the public, is a collaboration between the ASEF and the Hawaii Department of Education which will transport more the 400 high school students from public schools to the convention center. Many of these students represent schools at which the ASEF ELEVATE Outreach Team will have provided demonstrations, given lectures about superconductivity, and highlighted the ASC’22 conference the week before the conference. A diverse and welcoming team of students, young professionals, seasoned scientists, and industry experts from the ASC’22 conference will engage the public and local students in a transformational educational extravaganza including rides on the IEEE superconducting levitator!
