Princess Anne High School’s technology education teacher, Roger Crider, and his classes in Introduction to Engineering recently hosted visitors from Norfolk State University for a National Science Foundation project.
The Meta-PREM project (Partnership for Research and Education in advanced Materials) is housed at the Center for Materials Research at NSU, and started last summer. The PA students worked with a group of seven internationally diverse graduate students from NSU’s materials science and engineering program who delivered four hands-on activities on the interaction of electromagnetic fields with materials.
These were developed under the direction of Dr. Natalia Noginova, a PREM researcher. The event was organized by Dr. Suely M. Black, PREM project Education Director. A partnership led by NSU, PREM includes the University of Michigan, Purdue University and Cornell University. Events are planned for high schools during the summers and for the coming school year.
