- ASM Materials Education Foundation’s Camps
August 1 - 5, 2022
The ASM Materials Education Foundation provides for the advancement of scientific and engineering knowledge through its support of education and research. The free ASM Materials Camp for adults who work with youth in grades K–5 will be held on August 1–5 at the University of Minnesota in Minneapolis. It is the only K–5 camp ASM offers and welcomes teachers, informal/nonformal educators, and youth workers who lead STEM educational programming. Participants will experience a week of hands-on experiments and lessons and will be equipped to use them in their classroom or program; engage with NGSS science and engineering practices through real-world applications of materials science, chemistry, and engineering; and meet STEM industry professionals and build connections to benefit their students.
ASM also hosts free Materials Camps for middle school and high school teachers in the United States and Canada, and the camps will be in-person this summer. Teachers will engage with NGSS science and engineering practices through real-world applications of engineering and hands-on activities you can incorporate in your classroom. The camps provide an opportunity to meet volunteers from industry and build connections to benefit your students. Visit the website for dates and more details.
