Introducing high school students to materials engineering and thermal spray technology through classroom and hands-on demonstrations has been a very successful component of our Center’s outreach activities.
Undergraduate Jason Trelewicz and graduate students Swarnima Deshpande and David Otterson have worked with the Center as part of its K-12 Educational Outreach. Research internships are also offered to high school students (Melissa Hoyos, Gabrielle Sirow, Dan Lang, John Iraci, Jason Mencher and Theodore Feldman) allowing them to develop fundamental research and writing skills while working in an industrial laboratory.
Pictured at right is a high school student using a combustion spray torch to deposit aluminum onto steel for corrosion protection.
