Students are encouraged to learn more about many exciting ASM Foundation programs including ASM Materials Camps, student scholarships, grants, leadership training and contests. High school seniors can search for materials science and engineering programs offered by North American colleges and universities.
Educators specializing in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) can attend a FREE 40-hour materials science workshop designed to make science more exciting and fun. Learn more about applying for grants and awards, and exchange ideas in the educators forum and find helpful resources for curriculum and classroom activities.
2. Columbia University - Summer Program for High School Students (NYC) - Introduction to Materials Science and Nanotechnology Now in its 27th year, Columbia University's Summer Program for High School Students offers highly-motivated students the unique opportunity to experience college life in the Ivy League while sampling the vibrancy of New York City. Open to students entering grades 9 through 12 and freshman year of college, the program combines academic rigor and instructional excellence with lively extracurricular offerings and careful supervision and support.
3. Materials Science and Engineering at Michigan Tech The Department of Materials Science and Engineering provides demonstration visits to allow K-12 school students an opportunity to explore the field of materials science and engineering. These visits provide “hands-on” activities in addition to demonstrations of instruments and processes used in the materials field. Students observe objects at magnifications by tens of thousands in the scanning electron microscope, and see molten metal poured into a sand mold in our foundry.
4. Middlesex High School - Material Science-Honors Overview MATERIAL SCIENCE HONORS is a course intended to introduce students to the laboratory and classroom experiences that they would encounter in the exciting field of material science and engineering (MSE).
Material science and engineering is one of the most highly interdisciplinary and dynamic engineering disciplines. Material scientists and material engineers seek to understand the fundamental relationships between the structure, properties, processing and performance of materials so that we can synthesize new materials, develop improved processes for making materials and understand the role of materials in the changing environment of tomorrow.
5. University of Oregon GK12 Science Outreach The University of Oregon’s GK-12 Science Outreach Program, provides fellowship support for graduate students from the Chemistry and Physics departments. These GK-12 Fellows serve as resources for teaching hands-on physical science and mathematics in partnering Oregon elementary and middle schools.
Gk-12 Fellows spend two weeks per term as "scientists-in-residence." During this period they work daily in their assigned schools, assisting classroom teachers with a variety of in-school activities centered around increasing the level of inquiry-based science teaching and learning in rural Oregon schools.
