ASM Materials Education Foundation Hosts Mini Materials Camp for Students

Our goal is to introduce high school students with interest in engineering, chemistry, physics, mathematics, and computer science to a career in materials science and engineering. One way we do this is to host mini-camps at industry tradeshows and invite local students to attend, including our camp at the Heat Treat 2017 event taking place October 24-26 in Columbus, Ohio.

Students will have the opportunity to see demonstrations and learn about important research topics in the field of materials science including fuel cells, superconducting materials, and shape-memory alloys to name a few.

It is our desire to reach high school juniors and seniors who have an interest in STEM subjects and introduce them to a future in the field of materials science. Students will take part in a two-hour session during which they will view six to eight demonstrations to learn more about the world of materials.

New 2017 “Heat Matters” Goody Bags for Teachers

The ASM Materials Education Foundation and the ASM Heat Treating Society (HTS) will provide heat treat “goody bags” to the 2017 mini-camp teacher participants. The kit is intended to provide teachers with tools to keep their students engaged and interested in heat treating careers. The addition of the goody bag is expected to enhance the learning experience and generate interest and exposure to both heat treating and HTS.

The ASM Materials Education Foundation provides for the advancement of scientific and engineering knowledge through its support of education and research. Thanks to the hard work on the part of ASM volunteers and staff, the foundation is able to provide exciting opportunities for young people, encouraging them to pursue careers in materials, science, and engineering.
Get involved. Together we can do more.
