This summer the ASM Materials Science Teacher Camp was presented to over 20 in-service and pre-service science teachers at Temple Ambler. This high quality, nationally recognized program, was made possible through a collaborative effort by Temple's College of Science and Technology, the Henry M. Rowan Family Foundation, the Liberty Bell Chapter of ASM, and ASM's Materials Education Foundation.
A great time was had by all presenters, visitors, and special guests at the 2016 Junior Science and Humanities Symposium. High school students from around the Philadelphia Area competed to win the chance to represent Philadelphia in the national JSHS competition held in Washington DC. Temple University's College of Science and Technology provided a STEM Fair for all visitors. Derrick Pitts, Chief Astronomer and Director of the Planetarium at the Franklin Institute gave an inspiring talk to start the day off. Mid-day, Mayor Jim Kenney visited each booth at the STEM Fair and even took a few pictures (shown below). Awards were presented by Temple University's College of Science and Technology Dean, Michael Klein.
