Introduction of Materials Science Through Solid State Chemistry.
Mueller, William M.
Presented is a report of a program of the American Society for Metals, designed to introduce materials science principles via solid state chemistry into high school chemistry courses. At the time of the inception of this program in the mid-sixties, it was felt that high school students were not being adequately exposed to career opportunities in the materials field. Consequently, a 64-page student text, teacher's guide, reference book, visual aids, and kits for laboratory experiments were developed. It has been estimated that the Solid State Structure and Reactions program has reached over 100,000 students through 900 reachers, The materials are still available at a low cost. (CP)
