JLAB organizes the first Minecraft & Manufacturing (M&M) Workshop for School Students.August 14th, 2017 By reeja
Students aged 9-14 were introduced to concepts relevant to materials processing (e.g., diffusion) and demonstrated these concepts in a Minecraft project. A huge thank you to Dr. Judith Hallinen of CMU’s Leonard Gelfand Center for Service Learning and Outreach.
