CEMAS-Metro Science Enrichment
Center for Electron Microscopy and Analysis (CEMAS) at The Ohio State University and Metro Early College High School, a unique STEM oriented secondary school located close to CEMAS with strong pre-existing connections to Ohio State. Through the program, Ohio State graduate students in Materials Science & Engineering (MSE) will work directly with Metro students enrolled in physics and chemistry courses.The use of advanced electron microscopy as a visualization tool is a key component of STEM education and research. The CEMAS-Metro Science Enrichment is a collaboration between the
In May 2016, the pilot program was introduced, in which Communications officer, Isabel Boona, and Senior Research Officer, Frank Scheltens, worked together to develop a two-lecture K-12 Outreach opportunity for local high school students. The opportunity included an introduction to Materials Science and Engineering as well as Electron microscopy.
The Honda - Ohio State Partnership first provided full funding for the 2016 – 2017 academic year of this collaboration. Through a new grant from Honda R&D Americas, Inc., the program is guaranteed to be implemented over the next two years.
