Bringing kids to science

In late summer, teachers from all over the Midlantic region visited Lehigh to learn new ways to teach kids science on an ever-shrinking budget. Roughly 17 teachers, mostly from eastern Pennsylvania but some from as far away as Frederick, MD, attended a week-long camp sponsored by Lehigh and the American Society of Materials (ASM). In one lesson, teachers were making plastics using everyday, inexpensive products."Teachers or parents can just go to the grocery store and get these supplies," said Helen Chan, department chair and professor of materials science and engineering.
