ASM Materials Camp® For Teachers- Lehigh Valley

July 13-17, 2020 Lehigh University, Whitaker Lab, Bethlehem, PA

Applications due April 26

The camp is a one-week workshop giving examples of low cost / no cost, simple labs and experiments using everyday materials that can be integrated into existing lesson plans. These lessons allow for exposure of entire classrooms to the principals of Materials Science and Engineering. This camp is free of cost and includes lunches and supplies, although transportation costs are the responsibility of the attendees. This is a full day (8:00 to 5:00 PM) 5-day long workshop. Primary faculty are two experienced high school “Master Teachers” who have taught materials science courses for many years and helped develop this innovative approach to hands-on learning of applied science principles. Our goal is to engage and excite young people in science and math!

Please note for the 2020 program, we do have LIMITED housing availability for the week (low cost but the responsibility of the attendee) at Lehigh University for those interested!  Please contact Laura Moyer at for more information!
