ACerS members Andrew Hoffman, Olivia Rodell, Les Harmon, Andy Gerbing, and Kaylea Pogue recently volunteered their time and expertise at the National Science Teachers Association National Conference in St. Louis, Missouri. They assisted CGIF staff by explaining scientific concepts and demonstrating lab activities from the CGIF’s Materials Science Classroom Kit at the conference, which took place April 11-13, 2019.
Hoffman and Rodell are students at Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri; Harmon is a retiree of The Boeing Company; and Gerbing and Pogue are employees of Mo-Sci Corporation in Rolla.
The CGIF appreciates the dedication of these volunteers who share our commitment to student and teacher outreach, as we all strive to encourage more students to become involved in ceramic and glass science and engineering.
