Sound Education

Sound offers unique and rich education opportunities because of its human perception and the societal utility of sound waves and phonons. The signature educational activity of the NewFoS is the pursuit of an innovative approach to science education and mentoring pipelines intimately tied to our paradigm-changing sound research activities—A Sound Education. NewFoS is educating the next generation of students, technologists, researchers, leaders and policymakers in a new science of sound to exploit and manage novel and critical sound or sound-based technologies—a highly qualified STEM workforce. NewFoS emphasizes educational and mentoring mechanisms that seamlessly recruit, train and foster the successful transitions of STEM students, researchers and early-career scientists along their academic-to-professional career pipelines.
