The ASM International Foundation launches its 2017 “Living In a Material World” Teacher Grants, which emphasize materials science and the role of materials scientists in the modern world. The grants aid teachers by bringing the world of materials science into the classroom through 20 grants of $500 each.
Deadline: May 25.
ASM International knows how rewarding it is to develop metals, glasses, ceramics and polymers and seeks to help students learn more about these materials.
To enter, submit a two-page proposal describing a curriculum-based, hands-on project involving students’ observation, communication, and mathematics and science skills while enhancing their awareness of the materials around them. K-12 teachers are eligible for the funding.
