Teacher Materials Camp

 

This week-long, hands-on lab experience shows educators how to use applied engineering techniques in their classroom. ASM Teachers Camp is an idea-generating workshop introducing teachers to methods that make math and core science principles more enticing and relevant to their middle and high school students. Materials topics are great motivators in any engineering, technology or science course as students complete projects of personal worth to them.

  • The camp is FREE for attendees. Participants are eligible to receive four (4) Continuing Education
    Units (CEUs) and can opt for two (2) graduate level credits.
  • Educators work hands-on with metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites, and develop a greater appreciation
    for the importance of these materials in modern life.
  • Teachers Camp is a proven program that strengthens the curriculum in Science, Technology, Engineering and
    Mathematics (STEM).
  • Post camp evaluations reveal that 97% of participants will incorporate the experiments and concepts learned
    in their classrooms.
