NJIT To Host Materials Science Workshop for High School Teachers

For the first time, NJIT will host the American Society of Materials (ASM) Camp® for high school teachers on June 27-July 1. During this one-week workshop, teacher participants will learn the basics of Materials Science Technology as taught at the high school level. The program builds on curriculum development, teacher training and student programs in Materials Science developed at the University of Washington and Edmonds Community College and supported by the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technology Education program. These programs have demonstrated that Materials Science is an excellent tool to bring together academic and vocational instructors in a common goal of exciting students about science, technology and engineering.
