Avondale SubC sponsor Olivia Thorne car

SubC supports diversity; young women pursuing hobbies and careers which are traditionally male dominated

Community Outreach, Gallery | May 24, 2016

It is true that when young people are educated, skilled and able pursue their goals; society and economies benefit. SubC believes that everyone, regardless of gender, race or location, should be free to achieve their self-defined purpose. Every year we donate through Canadian registered charities to help young women get education in under-developed nations.

“Diversity in the world is a basic characteristic of human society, and also the key condition for a lively and dynamic world as we see today.”

— Jintao Hu

As a small way to support this initiative locally we have sponsored two young women who compete at the Eastbound Speedway in Avondale. They have recently placed 2nd and 4th place at the first NASCAR Whelen All American Series; congratulations Olivia and Sara Thorne. Check out CBC’s coverage here.


Jelly Illuminated by RED LED Light

Red light can be used to achieve more realistic colouring of photos taken underwater (see our datasheet for an example) and to illuminate various fluids for leak detection, and can be especially useful in deep ocean applications where many species in this environment are unable to detect it.

For example, Team ORCA discusses the successful filming of the first footage of Architeuthis in its natural habitat by using far-red light that is invisible to the giant squid.

While far-red light does not come standard with the Aquorea Adaptive Red LED Light, SubC will customize the product to meet this requirement upon request.
