Dates & Times

The ASM Materials Camp will take place on the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign campus June 20-24, 2016. This is a full day (8:00am - 5:00pm), 5-day workshop.


High school teachers (public, private, independent) in math, science, and technology are invited to apply. Junior high school teachers may be considered for the program if there is room.


The camp is free, plus there is no registration fee. Snacks and lunches will be provided.


Housing at a campus residence hall (to include breakfast/dinner) will be provided for teachers who are not within easy driving distance of Champaign-Urbana. A limited number of rooms are available. Questions about housing should be directed to the Materials Science and Engineering Department, not the ASM Foundation. For more information about housing, contact Cindy Brya (phone number listed on left).


4 Continuing Education Unit (CEU) credits or 40 CPDU contact hours will be available for Illinois teachers. 2 graduate credits will be available for $250 (at participant’s expense) through the University of Missouri-Kansas City. This is optional.
