The Forging Foundation (FIERF) is a proud sponsor of ASM Teacher Materials Camps. In addition to providing financial support, FIERF also supplies each of the approximately 1,000 teachers attending the camps with a “Forge Your Future” bag containing materials on the forging process and careers in the forging industry.
“ASM Materials Education Foundation supports educators involved in materials science and engineering through a free 40-hour materials-science workshop called the ASM Materials Camp – Teachers,” explains Nichol Campana, director of development and operations for the ASM Foundation. The 48 camps scheduled for this summer are “focused on enriching, stimulating and enhancing the technical competence and teaching skills of high school and middle school STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) teachers. The main emphasis is the use of everyday man-made physical materials, providing hands-on experiences and proven classroom techniques that engage students in science, engineering, technology and mathematics.”
