ASHRAE AT THE DISCOVER SCIENCE FESTIVAL AND 14th ANNUAL HIGHER LEARNING DAY

ASHRAE AT THE DISCOVER SCIENCE FESTIVAL AND 14th ANNUAL HIGHER LEARNING DAY

Alicia Tan, K-12 STEM Lead

On November 3rd, Golden Gate ASHRAE had a booth at the annual Discovery Day at AT&T Park as part of the Bay Area Science Festival.  We ran a pressure drop experiment where the kids blew into a short straw and a long straw and observed on how it was harder to blow through the longer straw.  They learned how pressure drop can affect the amount of effort and energy that is required to move a fluid through a conduit.

The day went really well and both the kids and volunteers had fun! Thank you to all the volunteers who came out and helped! Here are some pictures from the day.

Golden Gate ASHRAE members joined San Francisco State University (SFSU) ASHRAE student members at the 14th Annual Higher Learning Day on October 10th where we helped teach middle school students about energy and thermodynamics through hands-on activities.  Thank you to SFSU ASHRAE for organizing, and to the volunteers who participated!
