This was MEE’s 13th year as a sponsor of ASM International Materials Science Camp for high school students. ASM Materials Camp utilizes hands-on learning principles of applied math and science for a truly unique, team-based problem solving experience that explores materials science and engineering principles.
The students are assigned a failure analysis project on the first day of camp and spend a day in the laboratories at MEE examining their samples and gathering data. They prepare their samples in the metallographic lab, view the microstructure using SEM and metallographic microscopes and perform Rockwell hardness tests all under the direction of industry and education based Materials Mentors.
Three MEE staff, Larry Hanke, Kurt Schenk and Neal Hanke, were camp mentors for the entire week of camp.
