Starting with just four symposia in 1983, the Materials Research Society’s (MRS) Spring Meeting and Exhibit has grown to over 50 symposia and over 5,000 attendees. Held annually in San Francisco’s Moscone West convention hall, MRS Spring Meetings are essential events for discovering and presenting the very latest developments in materials research.
The MRS 2012 Spring Meeting in San Francisco, April 9-13, 2012, is having an Educational Symposium – Symposium ZZ-Transforming Education in Materials Science and Engineering.
Session topics include:
Join us at the Public Outreach Center at the Spring Meeting and learn the role MRS has in the following education outreach communities. Find out how you can participate and be a part of this exciting movement e action as we bring the science of materials to the general public.
The NISE Network will have a booth answering questions, displaying some of our activities for young audiences, and doing some hands-on activities.
Join us throughout the week during the coffee breaks as national science centers and science museums, in partnership with the NISE Network, present “stimulating” educational, outreach through hands-on activities in materials science and nanotechnology.
Created for general public audiences at the Museum of Science Boston, “Cleaning Our Water with Nanotechnology” is a presentation about our drinking water and how we can make contaminated water safe to drink using a variety of technologies – including 3 new nanotechnologies for water purification.
Students are invited to join us at the Student Mixer for good food and drink while exploring interactive science activities.
The offerings below are designed to provide the skills, fundamentals and knowledge needed for both professional development and career enhancement in materials science and engineering. Each of the offerings below are free to registered attendees.
