Two high school students visit for summer lab program

Two Tennessean high school students are visiting CLMI from July 9 to 12 for the High School Introduction to Engineering Systems for Twelfth Graders (HITES12) program.

The students will gain an appreciation for how computer programming can be useful for conducting computational materials science. They will also be exposed to the topics of composites and microstructural geometry as well as the benefits of computer modeling to help design future materials and perform safety analyses. The students use a finite element program to optimize the arrangement of phases in a polymer composite to be 3D printed, and then they’ll present their findings on July 13 at the Engineering Design Showcase.
