Purdue University Calumet’s Department of Mechanical Engineering is hosting the ASM International Materials Camp for Teachers beginning Monday and continuing through June 27on campus.
Using everyday materials that can be integrated easily into existing lesson plans, participating teachers will discover how to conduct low/no cost simple labs and experiments to engage students.
