July 18-22, 2021 (In-Person Camp)
Are you a highly motivated learner with an aptitude for math and science? If you are, then you should explore your interests by spending a week at Missouri S&T's Materials Camp! You will actively explore materials science and engineering principles through a combination of mini-demonstrations, field trips and group projects. With the help of experts, you will learn how to use state-of-the-art research equipment. You will also explore career opportunities available for those in the materials and engineering fields.
Past projects included microelectronic circuitry, friction-stir welding, ceramic magnets, metal casting, glass processing, heat treatment and mechanical property evaluation, plasma-spray deposition and others.
Date: July 18-22, 2021
Eligibility: 11th and 12th grades in fall 2021. Acceptance to this camp is selective. Students should have a strong interest in applied materials science.
