OGDEN — Many educators are preparing for the start of school by continuing their own education.

Ten Davis County teachers took part in a camp focusing on core science principles at Weber State University earlier this month.

The camp gave teachers lab experience with metals, ceramics, polymers and composites, to help them generate ideas for their own teaching.

Presenters from Ohio and Washington joined others at the ASM (American Society for Metals) Materials Camp sponsored by WSU’s College of Applied Science & Technology and College of Science.

Projects included making cantilever support beams, pouring molten tin, turning pennies into brass and creating clay pots and crystals.

“The goal is to give teachers tools and resources to get kids interested in science and learning,” said Rainie Ingram, recruitment coordinator at WSU, in a press release.
