The camps are week-long workshops that provide hundreds of high school science, math, and technolog y teachers with hands-on experiments and classroom instruction in materials science and engineering. In 2005, the NACE Foundation developed a "Corrosion Toolkit," or cKit TM , which was Participants at ASM's Materials Camps in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

The cKit TM , developed by NACE volunteers and corrosion experts, contains equipment and instructions for a series of corrosion- related experiments to provide high school students with an engaging way to learn about the effects of corrosion. Within the last decade, more than 7,700 cKits TM have been produced and distributed by the NACE Foundation.
