Slots Available For UTSI’s ASM Camp Coming Up Soon
There are still slots available for this summer’s ASM Materials Camp for high school sophomores, juniors and seniors, set for June 23-27, 2008. This Materials Camp gives high school students a chance to perform hands-on experiments working with actual equipment and research materials in the laboratory. Experiments will be led by UTSI professors and research staff, and will delve into the areas of lasers, rockets and jets, experimental materials, like carbon fiber, and much more. ASM Materials Camp will turn students into materials scientists for a week, studying “the stuff that things are made of,” and learning principles of applied math, physics and chemistry.
This camp is sponsored by ASM and the Center for Laser Applications Department at UTSI, so there is no cost for parents, even lunch is provided. However, students applying for ASM Materials Camp should have basic knowledge of algebra, chemistry and physics, and be able to describe why they want to learn more about engineering and materials science as a possible college major and career.
