What is this student chapter about?

We the Materials Advantage Student Chapter are excited about the science and technology of the metallurgical world. As a group we seek to sharpen our intellect and expand our knowledge while having as much fun as possible in the fulfillment of these goals. Activities such as the TMS materials bowl, ASM science camp, and TMS Bladesmithing competition give us an opportunity to learn and grow as we creatively implement the science of metallurgy in fun and exciting ways.

TMS Material Bowl:

At TMS 2016 the Material Advantage Student Chapter sent a team to compete against other schools at The Materials Bowl. The Material Bowl is a Jeopardy style game where questions are based on Material Science and Metallurgical Engineering. We won The Materials Bowl twice, once 2011 and  2016.
