Target Group: High School (Junior and Senior level)

Materials Camp is a week-long day camp where high school students come to the UW campus and learn about material science through hands on demonstrations, field trips and group projects. Attendance is free.

It is a very unique team-based and intensive problem solving science experience under the direction of a distinguished world-class faculty “Materials Mentor.”

If you are in the Seattle area, you can find out more about the local materials camp at their website. You can also find a national schedule for camps at the ASM International website. You must include a school transcript, up to two letters of recommendation and a personal essay (100 words or more) why you want to be selected to participate in materials camp. Please include your planned college major (if known) and career plans.
