Does your student outreach group have an innovative K-12 demo that is attracting attention amongst students and teachers? Would you like to gain public speaking experience and a chance to share your best practices with other students in the community? Submit your abstract to the “Student Career Development and K-12 Demo Exhibition” under Special Topics for MS&T 2010, October 17 – 21, 2010 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas, USA. Awards will be given in different categories for those selected to give their 20 minute presentation. Please see the MS&T 2010 symposia website for details: http://matscitech.org/program/technical-program/.
The deadline to submit is March 15, 2010.
In addition, submit your abstract by the deadline, and you could be eligible for the following:
- The Graduate Excellence in Materials Science (GEMS) Awards recognize the outstanding achievements of up to 10 graduate students in materials science and engineering. The award is open to all graduate students who are making an oral presentation in any symposium or session at MS&T. The awards are sponsored by the Basic Science Division of ACerS. For more information, contact Dr. John Blendell or Tricia Nicol.
- The Graduate Student Poster Contest is also open to any graduate student who submits a poster abstract. It recognizes superior research performed during graduate study. Winners will be announced during the opening poster session. The contest is organized by the Ceramic Educational Council. For more information, contact Tricia Nicol.
MS&T brings together scientists, engineers, students and suppliers to discuss current research and applications, and to shape the future of materials science and technology. Since corrosion has become a very relevant topic to materials, NACE International will co-sponsor MS&T’10 and will join the four host societies: ACerS, AIST, ASM and TMS.
