ASM Foundation Materials Camps
Meeting the Future Needs of American Industry

It is well recognized that the number of students entering the fields of engineering cannot meet the current needs of American Industry. Materials Science and Engineering is not well recognized by middle school and high school students as a potential field of study. The ASM Foundation has recognized the need to increase awareness about the field and has started the Materials Camp program.

Materials as the core for science camps is attractive to both students and teachers. Materials science offers a wide variety of tangible and interesting opportunities for teaching, learning, and inspiring interest in science and engineering careers.

A general overview of the history of the ASM Foundation and Materials Camps will be given. Data related to the number of students and teachers served as well as some success stories will be presented. The differences between the Student and Teachers Camps will be reviewed. Detailed history, challenges, and lessons learned from the Lehigh Valley ASM Chapter student and teacher camp will be covered.
