Learn About MRS Public Outreach
The MRS Public Outreach Committee is comprised of MRS members
who share a common goal to develop activities and programs to educate
the general public on materials research and its importance. The
activities and programs include, but are not limited to working within
formal and informal education, communications with the press, public
service information, and partnerships with science centers, government
agencies and research facilities.
