McMaster Material Advantage Chapter’s Materials on the Move event

The ongoing pandemic has made interacting with fellow classmates difficult in 2020. Luckily, McMaster University’s Material Advantage Chapter found a way to interact with their peers through a contest titled “Materials on the Move!” 

The contest consisted of a 5k run (or 10k bike ride) where participants were encouraged to take photos of items they saw on their route that relate to the Materials Science field. The photos were then reviewed by judges and the winning photographer received a free year of Material Advantage membership!

Have you and your classmates found creative ways to stay engaged in 2020? Email your stories to Courtney Shaffer for a chance to have your MA Chapter highlighted in an upcoming Material Advantage student newsletter!

The winning photo from T. McMurray is shown below and contrasts the metals in two bike racks and how they have held up to age.
