CORROSION 2016 RECAP 68 JUNE 2016 MATERIALS PERFORMANCE NACE INTERNATIONAL: VOL. 55, NO. 6 Tuesday, March 8, 2016 Retro Rewind Vancouver's historic Commodore Ballroom was the site for the NACE Foundation's Retro Rewind event, which followed the Scholarship Awards Ceremony. Ten Souljers band, a favorite in the Vancouver area, entertained the crowd and kept the guests out on the dance floor throughout the evening. During the Speller Lecture, David Shifler focused on hightemperature corrosion research. Since nearly all metals, alloys, and materials oxidize and corrode at high temperatures, researchers are working to understand the related mecha nisms so that new modeling tools can be developed to help predict metal damage rates. His work explores the protective scales that help resist hightemperature attack. Wednesday, March 9, 2016 Foundation Hosts Corrosion Mini Camp The NACE Foundation hosted its second corrosion minicamp, CORROSION: Opportunities Realized, to educate and spread corrosion awareness to the future of our industry. Fifty high school juniors and seniors from David Thompson Secondary School, Templeton Secondary School, and Sir Charles Tupper Secondary School were invited to participate in corrosionrelated activities at this daylong event at CORROSION 2016. High school students from the Vancouver area join corrosion students and professionals at the NACE Foundation's mini-camp, CORROSION: Opportunities Realized. Speller Award Lecture Addresses High-Temperature Corrosion Research David Shifer presented the 2016 Speller Award Lecture. High school students had the opportunity to try out the CoatingsPro virtual spray booth. Students tested the reactivity of various metals in a popular, hands-on corrosion experiment from the NACE Foundation's cKitâ„¢.
