Hatfield, PA, July 22, 2011 --(PR.com
)-- Laboratory Testing Inc. (LTI) was proud to sponsor Materials Camp 2011, conducted by ASM International on June 20-24, 2011. The materials and nondestructive testing laboratory and sustaining member of the ASM Philadelphia Chapter has been a regular sponsor of the seven-year-old program. The Camp gives high school students with strong abilities in math and science the opportunity to learn principles and practical applications of all phases of Materials Engineering. While Materials Camp is held across the country, the ASM Philadelphia Camp utilized the facilities of Drexel University Materials Science and Engineering Department.
“LTI is pleased to support the ASM Materials Camp again this year,” says Mike McVaugh, President of Laboratory Testing Inc. “Exposing today’s youth to the career opportunities in materials testing and engineering shows how they can impact the future for themselves and the world they live in.”
The Camp students attended classes and laboratory sessions led by Drexel University faculty and graduate students and used the principles they learned to compete in a team competition to design and build a composite beam. They were also able to see materials testing in action by touring the CH-47 Chinook Helicopter Production Line at Boeing.
