FORT WAYNE — Ivy Tech Community College’s Fort Wayne campus’ ASM Materials Camp is open to high school and middle school teachers in the fields of chemistry, physical science, engineering, industrial/career and technical education.
The five-day camp will be from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. June 18 to 21, and from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 22. It’ll take place in the campus’ Student Life Center, located at 3701 Dean Drive, Fort Wayne.
The camp will show teachers new ways to incorporate low-cost experiments into their existing curriculum. Teachers will be exposed to a vast array of materials, including ferrous, non-ferrous, plastic and composite materials.
“Exposing the teachers to these potential instruction areas opens up the lessons to a plethora of material-related instruction that a teacher would have not been exposed to otherwise,” said Nick Goodnight, assistant department chair of automotive and diesel technologies.
The camp is free to all area middle and high school science teachers. Two graduate-level credits are optional for $250 through the University of Missouri-Kansas City.
Teachers can get more information and sign up for the free camp online at IvyTech.edu/northeast/teachers.
