HWI to Sponsor Free Workshop for Teachers

Jun 29, 2018 / Uncategorized

HarbisonWalker International is partnering with The Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation (CGIF) and The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) to provide a free one-day event, Materials Science Workshop for Teachers, to be held on Wednesday, August 1, 2018, at HWI’s Advanced Technology & Research Center (ATRC) at 1001 Pittsburgh-McKeesport Boulevard in West Mifflin, PA.

The workshop will help 7th – 12th grade teachers bring materials science education into their classrooms through the use of the CGIF’s Materials Science Classroom Kit.  The kit makes materials science concepts relevant, interesting, and fun for young adults, and the hands-on demonstrations and labs are a proven way of getting students interested in subject matter that they will need to know as they prepare to enter the high-tech workforce of today.

Each workshop participant will receive a Materials Science Classroom Kit and The Magic of Ceramics book ($250 value), sponsored by HWI.
