Women in Materials Science and Engineering Breakfast: Strategies for a Professional STEM Career and Successful Personal
1 Session
Almost a decade ago, Linda Schadler was part of a team of women who wrote a book chapter for Success Strategies for Women in Science: A Portable Mentor, by Peggy Prichard. The working title for their chapter was “A Two Career Family—The Rules of the Game.” A kinder title was chosen, but this title captures the essence of how they thought about their message. At this early morning event, Linda Schadler provided some amusing anecdotes and thought-provoking comments on how you can’t have it all, but you can have a lot. She shared the experiences of the women in the book chapter and others she has known as they (and their partners) figured out how to have successful professional careers and personal lives. There was some emphasis on couples with children, but most of the messages apply to all—as we all have lives outside the workplace. She concluded by engaging the audience in some sharing of stories and constructive dialogue.
Career Paths in Materials Science
1 Session
This program was created with students in mind! Are you pursuing a degree in materials science but not yet exactly sure about your future career path? Tenured professor, laboratory researcher, industrial engineer, advocate, journalist—so many choices! Volunteers from MRS University Chapters pulled together a diverse panel of scientists who shared their insight about the role of materials science and engineering in their businesses, and addressed existing career opportunities at various degree levels. Panelists participated both live and by two-way virtual streaming. Students from around the world were able to view the session online and submit questions to the panel.
Exploration of the Impact of Materials on Society
1 Session
In this session, students investigated the availability and use of rare earth elements in materials science and their economic, societal and geopolitical impact. Following a brief presentation, on-site and virtual participants examined challenges and solutions from a variety of perspectives. Virtual participants submitted questions for real-time response.
Technology Innovation Forum: Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence
8 Sessions
The Sixth Technology Innovation Forum focused on Innovation and Entrepreneurial Excellence. Designed to provide a stage for innovators, industry leaders and venture capitalists to provide advice and discuss pressing issues in the materials industry, this year's Forum included a keynote talk and two sessions with invited speakers to discuss startup pathways, funding structures for capital intensive ventures and methods to successfully transition materials technologies from development to manufacturing.
Big and Open Data for Materials Research
1 Session
Big Data and Open Data are topics of increasing interest and discussion in the materials community. Advances in computational modeling are introducing a paradigm shift in how research is conducted and how data is analyzed and shared. Broad access to data holds the promise for advancing the speed to new discoveries. However, it also raises questions relating to quality, validation, reproducibility and intellectual property.
Building from a series of features in MRS Bulletin and Materials360® Online, this session sought to expand the community dialogue on Big and Open Data for Materials Research through a panel of experts with diverse perspectives:
