ASM Materials Camps®-Teachers

News-MPDec2014_ASM Calgary
Since 2005, the NACE Foundation has partnered with the ASM Materials Education Foundation to fund and organize Teacher Materials Camps, week-long educational summer camps for science, technology, engineering, and math teachers. These camps are held in more than 40 cities across the United States and Canada each summer providing STEM educators with the tools to excite their students and further their professional development.

 
The idea-generating workshop provides classroom instruction and hands-on lab experiences that show educators how to use applied engineering techniques in their classroom, making math and core science principles more enticing and relevant to their middle and high school students. The camp curriculum includes a 4-hour corrosion component utilizing the NACE Foundation’s Corrosion Toolkit (cKit™).

  • 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 with metals, ceramics, polymers, and composites, and develop a greater appreciation for the importance of these materials in modern life.
  • 97% of teacher participants incorporate the experiments and learned concepts in their classrooms.
