Kids in Titanium (KiT)
Share |
 
Last fall at the Las Vegas convention, ITA hosted 75 students (ages 11-14) from local metropolitan schools interested  in learning more about titanium metal. ITA Members volunteered their time to host the tabletop displays and the ITA worked with science teachers to create age appropriate curriculum. Students and science teachers learned how titanium is made, what industries currently use the metal, the ITA led an anodizing station where students colored their own piece of scrap and ITA handed out information about academic scholarships available and the women in titanium programming.
 
We understand, particularly as parents ourselves, you have to plant the seeds in young people to get them thinking about their futures. If you want them to be inspired to be a chef, you have to teach them how to cook. If we want youth to consider joining the titanium industry in their adult careers, we have to introduce them to the industry, plant those seeds at a young age so when they are ready to think about college, those who decide to study STEM fields may think again about that day when the titanium industry introduced them to the wonders of titanium metal.
 
If your organization is interested in hosting a Kids in Titanium event at a local school in your community, please contact us. We would be pleased to bring all the materials with us and we can help organize volunteers or your company may supply the volunteers to help man the tables. It’s a great way to support STEM in your community and many local newspapers and news channels report of these types of events so your company could be recognized.
