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.
