In the pursuit lifelong learning, Alex and Jason of the Infrared Training Center (ITC) paid a visit to a local elementary school looking to recruit the next generation of thermographers. What originally began as a single class demonstration (roughly 25 kids) blossomed into a gathering of the entire fifth grade class, over 90 children!

During a brief hour long presentation, the students were exposed to a crash course on infrared application and technology. The session sought to answer three basic questions: what is infrared, why do we use it, and how does it work?

The enthusiasm displayed by the students was both refreshing and uplifting. Not only could we see the energy we could feel it as well! The kids were shown hands on demonstrations which made learning about conduction, convection, and radiation heat transfer both fun and exciting.

The radiant culture of infrared (no pun intended) left a lasting impression on the children as well as the faculty. The session concluded with a quick photo opp. and an extended invitation to make an annual presentation for the students.

  1. I need to do a demonstration for my company for "Take your Child to Work Day" and I would appreciate any ideas for demonstrations. This is the second year, so I want to change it up a little. Thanks.
