Panel Discussion 3: MGI and Education
Friday, September 14, 2012 - 5:00pm - 5:50pm
The MGI focuses on restructuring, coordinating and, in some degree, reinventing the multiple stages of materials research, by focusing in the underlying science and mathematics. One question the panel will discuss is how these efforts may help improve education, with a goal of optimally preparing students for high tech jobs. Panel participants will bring different perspectives (high school, community college, undergraduate and graduate institutions). Panelists from industries and national labs can help identify what works and how to improve the current programs, and also new resources to be implemented.
