Connecting Chemistry and Materials Science Mark as Favorite (2 Favorites)

WEBINAR (65 minutes) recorded March 07, 2023

Madonna was right. We are living in a material world. Students are already familiar with the metals, plastics, ceramics, and composites that they see every day. We will show you how you can use concepts from Materials Science to teach chemistry skills and standards using low cost and readily available materials. We’ll help you open your students’ eyes to the science that is going on around them every day. We will also preview ASM Materials Camp®-Teachers - a week-long summer professional development course for teachers that will immerse you in concepts of Materials Science suitable for application to high school classrooms. There is no fee to attend Teachers Camp. Join us at this webinar for an appetizer. If that whets your appetite, then sign up for a summer session of Materials Camp.
