Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. Illuminates Scientific Horizons for Students

Ben's note: Kudos to Lake Shore for reaching out and engaging our young people in science and engineering!!

Westerville, Ohio, USA, February 11, 2010—Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc., will host a student day for Franklin and Delaware County schools at their science and technology-focused company. The event aims to demonstrate to approximately 130 math and science students how their course work and future studies can be translated into real-life applications. The students will attend information stations positioned around the facility and listen to presentations by Lake Shore engineers, physicists and mathematicians.
In keeping with President Obama’s challenge to public and private organizations to “think of new and creative ways of engaging young people in science and engineering” Lake Shore’s student day will take place on Wednesday, February 24th from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. Students will take a tour through the facility, stopping at seven various information stations where presenters will explain products including sensors, instruments and systems that are researched, designed and built in the Westerville facility. Since Lake Shore products are often used in a laboratory setting to assist scientists in their own research, students will have the opportunity to not only see how and what Lake Shore produces, but they will also learn how these products are used by scientists to research and discover new technology. Lake Shore hopes to foster an enthusiasm for math, science and engineering for these students by showing them real-life end results that can be achieved with a math and science background.
In 2008, Lake Shore, Inc. celebrated its 40th anniversary in part by hosting their first student day. With the success of that day, and President Obama’s “Educate to Innovate” campaign (, Lake Shore has decided to make its student day an annual affair. Approximately 130 eleventh and twelfth grade science students from Franklin and Delaware County schools will attend the event.
Established in 1968, Lake Shore is an international supplier of cryogenic temperature sensors and instrumentation, optical components, magnetic test equipment, metrology systems and probe stations for the characterization of magnetic and transport properties of materials. Lake Shore customers include leading university, government, NASA and commercial research institutions and are supported by a global network of sales and service offices.
