Materials Science Camp 2017

posted June 2017

Last Friday we had thirty high school students at MEE  as part of a week-long Materials Science Camp sponsored by the MN Chapter of ASM International.  Under the direction of  industry and education based “Materials Mentors”, students got some real world experience solving a materials failure analysis project. Three of our staff, Larry Hanke, Kurt Schenk and Neal Hanke, and our summer intern, Atte were  camp mentors. This was MEE’s eleventh year sponsoring the camp.

Larry Hanke just returned from a visit to the Ottawa Chapter of ASM International. As a member of the ASM Board of Trustees, Larry has been invited to visit many local chapters. These visits are an important way to keep local chapters updated on what is going on in the organization at the national level and for the Board to hear about issues and concerns of the local chapters.  He enjoyed meeting the Ottawa chapter members and hearing about their involvement in Teacher Materials Camp.
