Materials Science and Engineering

Bring your students to campus for hands-on activities and demonstrations of instruments and processes used in the materials field. Students observe objects at magnifications by tens of thousands in the scanning electron microscope, and see molten metal poured into a sand mold in our foundry. Visits are tailored to fit the available time and age of participants.
