Material Science

2nd Quarter in Material Science


Fall is upon us and so is 2nd Quarter!  I am so excited about this time of might be my favorite to teach in Material Science (although I do seem to say that about everything in Material Science…)!  We are taking an in depth look at metals and the chemistry of heat treatment, work hardening, crystal defects and more!  This will naturally take us into our last unit of the semester over Corrosion. Did you know that the US roughly spends 6% of the GDP to battle corrosion in our country?!  

We have some special treats this quarter….we are having a blacksmith come and do a special presentation and demonstration over the science of his trade!  In addition, at the beginning of December, a metallurgical engineer will be coming to speak to us about Failure Analysis!  I can’t wait!
