ABSTRACT

The National Educators' Workshop (NEW:Update) series of workshops has been in existence for the past twelve years. The annual workshops focus on technical updates and laboratory experiments for materials science, engineering and technology, involving new and traditional content in the field. Scores of educators and industrial personnel have contributed 213 experiments and demonstrations for demonstration then publication as NASA Conference Proceedings. Through a collaborative effort among education, industry, and national laboratories, all of the experiments from the first ten years of NEW:Updates are now available for easy use on CD-ROM in the popular Acrobat Reader format; the same format used for the Annual ASEE Conference Publications CD-ROM.

This presentation provides an overview of the now completed Experiments in Materials Science, Engineering and Technology CD-ROM (EMSET CD-ROM) and a tutorial of how to use the CD- ROM to support teaching of materials science, engineering, and technology. The 213 experiments and demonstrations are indexed under the following categories: Testing and Evaluation, Polymers, Metals, Ceramics, Composites, Electronic Materials, and Materials Curriculum. The CD-ROMs operate on most popular computer platforms. An additional CD-ROM provides videos on Scanning Tunneling and Atomic Force Microscopy, High Performance Polymers, Advanced Ceramics, and Advanced Composites.

INTRODUCTION

The National Educators' Workshop series (NEW:Update) of workshops has been in existence for the past eleven years. The activities focus on technical updates and laboratory experiments for materials science, engineering and technology, involving new and traditional content in the field.

The National Aeronautic and Space Administration (NASA), the Department of Energy (DOE), National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), and Norfolk State University (NSU), have provided the major funding for these workshops. Joining in the support are the American
