Educational Resources for Modern Light Metals
The goal of this program, a collaboration of the Alcoa Foundation, the Materials Research Society (MRS) Foundation, the Metals Service Centers Institute (MSCI) and The Minerals, Metals and Materials Society (TMS), is to produce supplemental resources for use in undergraduate and community college courses, including courses such as introduction to physical science, introduction to materials science and introduction to light metals. These are not traditional on-line courses. Instead, the objective is to create “resource modules” that will help students understand why light metals are important to modern society, highlight recent advancements in materials research and introduce key material behaviors of light metals.
