InfoComm to promote careers in AV at USA Science and Engineering Festival

Infocomm exhibit at USA Science Engineering Festival

Infocomm International will show students the science behind AV technology at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in Washington, D.C. from April 16 to 17, 2016.

The festival’s fourth edition will see over 350,000 people gather at Walter E. Washington Convention Centre to see more than 3,000 exhibits, experiments and performances. The festival is the largest event focused on science, technology, engineering and maths in the country.

As an exhibitor, Infocomm will seek to inspire students with interactive activities by exploring sound principles including dynamic range, pitch and volume and advanced applications such as 3D modelling, drones, projector mapping and VR. The booth will feature ‘audio discover stations’ where students can listen to different types of headphones and compare sound quality.

“It’s important to expose children to a variety of career paths in order to see what sparks their interest. This festival is a great setting for students to get up close to technology and talk with experts about careers in STEM,” said Betsy Jaffe, senior vice president of member services at InfoComm International. She added: “We want to show students that the AV industry offers exciting careers, whether it's the staging of a major concert or being the technical expert behind a high-powered conference room.”

Infocomm will exhibit at the free event at booth 937. The Women of InfoComm Network will appear at the festival’s Career Pavilion at booth C56.
