Ivy Tech Community College Fort Wayne’s ASM Materials Camp is open to high school and middle school teachers in the fields of chemistry, physical science, engineering, industrial/career, and technical education.
The camp will show teachers new ways to incorporate low-cost experiments into their existing curriculum. Teachers will be exposed to a vast array of materials, including ferrous, non-ferrous, plastic, and composite materials.
“At the ASM teachers camp, we hope to provide local teachers with a multitude of inexpensive experiments that they can take back to their classroom,” says Nick Goodnight, assistant department chair of Automotive and Diesel Technology. “The topics covered during this camp can be used to expose students to a variety of materials related concepts. This exposure will ultimately help stimulate STEM related interest for young people in our community and hopefully get them excited about the material world around them.”
The camp is free to all area middle and high school science teachers. Two graduate-level credits are optional for $250 through the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Teachers can get more information and sign up for the free camp online at IvyTech.edu/fortwayne/teachers. Space is limited.
