Future City Competition

The National Engineers Week Future City Competition offers 7th and 8th grade students a resourceful way to learn about engineering. The Pittsburgh Section presents students with a cash award for “The best use of ceramics” in their displays. The judging is based on the specific inclusion of ceramic materials in the model (and the ability to identify them) and the knowledge of the group (or spokes member) of how ceramics/materials would be used in their city of the future.


All ACerS Meetings



The J. Earl Frazier Memorial Scholarship, $2000 minimum, is awarded annually to a member of a junior class at one of the colleges providing an accredited undergraduate ceramic science and/or engineering curriculum and whose home residence is within the geographical confines of the Pittsburgh Section.
