New for the 2019 MRS Spring Meeting!
Join educators from Arizona State University's School for the Future of Innovation in Society and the Princeton University Center for Complex Materials/PRISM as they present engaging educational activities designed to help inform and educate young children and the general public about materials science and sustainability and their personal relevancy in everyday life.
A new half-day workshop, Communicating Science to Public Audiences—Science Communication Workshop, will be presented Monday afternoon, designed to increase confidence in scientists as they communicate their work and become part of a community of researchers who share an interest in science outreach and engagement.
Many sustainability initiatives focus on technologies that minimize carbon footprint and energy use. In the Interactive Workshop—Designing Sustainability into Materials Research, you will learn to expand the definition of sustainability to include aspects that limit sustainable materials development, as opposed to sustainable technology development.
Materials Needs for Energy Sustainability by 2050—Incentivizing a Zero-Waste Future, an interactive, moderated panel discussion, will be held on Tuesday evening. This special program will include audience Q&A as well as real-time audience polling, so bring your smartphone and be ready to participate in this provocative session.
