What is Materials Camp?

A week-long opportunity to learn about materials science using a range of equipment and skills. Students utilize hands-on learning principles of applied math and science; a truly unique, team-based problem-solving experience that explores materials science and engineering principles. It is our goal that each student will find this opportunity interesting, fun, relevant, and educational.

Why Attend?

Materials are the building blocks of civilizations. Advancement in technology is dependent on the materials that are available. Materials science is an interdisciplinary approach to science that brings together tools in science, technology, and mathematics to solve societal critical needs. Since materials touch every aspect of engineering design, the study of materials provides opportunities for students to learn science and math in the context of real-world applications.
