Intended Audience: Grades 9th-12th

Materials, Metallurgy & Forensics

If you already know what a metallurgical engineer does and what doing a ‘forensic investigation’ entails, then you know how cool this camp will be!

In case you do not know about this field of engineering, here are just some of the things you will do at this camp:

Learn about metals, nanomaterials, composites, and polymers
Get hands-on with heat treating, blacksmithing, welding, and casting
Do materials testing (i.e., impact and tensile strength testing) and materials characterization using an optical and scanning electron microscope
Practice forensic engineering by investigating how materials fail and investigate the authenticity of historic metal artifacts.

This day camp is supported by the ASM Materials Education Foundation. Students will learn from professors at South Dakota Mines.
