      Manufacturing Day 2017: Open Doors, Open Minds

      One of the most basic components of human nature is curiosity about the world around us – specifically the desire to understand how things are made and how they work. This curiosity is even stronger in adolescence, and harnessing it helps inspire the next generation of STEM leaders, thinkers, and doers.

      Learn more about Manufacturing Day 2017 and how AMO and partners showed students the diverse opportunities that manufacturing offers including everything from the shop floor to world-class R&D facilities.

      Taking Aluminum Alloys to New Heights

      According to Orlando Rios, a researcher at ORNL, cerium is overproduced, inexpensive, and finding new uses for it supports domestic rare-earth mining operations and provides innovative resource materials to U.S. manufacturers. The Critical Materials Institute (CMI) was looking for useful applications for cerium.

      Read more about Eck Industries, an aluminum foundry, its commercial scale-up of Al-Ce production and applications and CMIs continued search for new scientific challenges that can be solved with early-stage R&D.
