EMERG Student Camp Brings Local Students to Show Floor

Known as the EMERG Student Camp, this day-long mini-camp for local high school students will be held Wednesday in conjunction with the 2022 AMPP Annual Conference + Expo.

As part of the event, local students from high schools around San Antonio will participate in hands-on coatings and corrosion-related activities using cKits™ (Corrosion Toolkits). They will learn basic scientific principles of corrosion in topics such as oxidation, thermodynamics, and electrochemistry.

Students will also have the opportunity to learn about research and career opportunities from industry professionals and university students while touring the show floor at the Exhibit Hall.

The event will take place from 10:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. local time at the Hemisfair Ballroom C2 of the Henry B. González Convention Center. Covestro is the camp’s Signature Sponsor, while the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades (IUPAT) is the Lunch Sponsor and international Paint is the T-Shirt Sponsor.
