Discover an MRS Community of Science Education and Public Outreach
The Materials Research Society is playing a major role in bringing the education, research and industrial communities together at the 2019 MRS Fall Meeting.
Join us for exciting hands-on activities, demonstrations, information areas, seminars and workshops to engage current and future materials scientists and engineers. Find out how you can participate as we partner to bring the science of materials to the general public, explore the topics of sustainable practices and the impact of society on materials science, education and outreach.
In addition to visiting the Public Outreach Center, interact with educators, scientists and students at our hands-on activities during the Frontiers Reception and Coffee Breaks.
