Materials Science and Technology is a course proven to help students at the high school and college levels understand the role of technology in our society and to encourage them to take more courses in science, math and technology. This five day Chautauqua course, sponsored jointly with the EMTECH program, provides instructors with hands-on experience with the Materials Science and Technology (MST) curriculum, along with needed teaching pedagogy and resources. High school and community college instructors in technology, science or mathematics may be eligible to receive a stipend of $60/day for participating in this five-day course. [Shared lodging is available for those traveling more than 50 miles from the site.]
Enhancement of Materials Technology for Manufacturing (EMTECH)
at Edmonds Community College, Lynnwood, WA, is an NSF-funded project based on
past experiences in the areas of curriculum development, teacher training and
student programs in Materials Technology. Materials Science and Technology are
topics that excite students' interest because the student has everyday, hands-on
experience with materials. Thus
materials topics are great motivators in any engineering, technology or science
course. Materials are also a very important and an integral part of
the manufacturing process. Society
needs to better understand the role of materials in everyday life.
Materials Science activities can also be used in both academic and
vocational courses and thus assists in the transition for technology students
across the high school-community college boundary.
For high school and community college teachers of science, technology or engineering.
Deborah Goodwin and
Ryan Long are science and technology teachers at High Schools in Chillicothe
and Bonne Terre, MO, respectively. They
have been highly successful in developing the MST course for students, and have
several years experience in leading these hands-on institutes where other
teachers learn this subject.
Dr. John Rusin
