This year the SCHOOL@MUL project again took place at the Montanuniversität Leoben and from our Department the Chairs for Casting Research, for Nonferrous Metallurgy and for Ferrous Metallurgyparticipated.
At the Chair for Ferrous Metallurgy, we had visitors from elementary school, 3rd year and from the “Altes Gymnasium Leoben” we had visitors from the 2nd year.
After a short introduction the curios junior scientists had the chance to dig into the world of steel and learn about the process chain of steel.
There they learned about the way from iron ore to the steel product and they had the chance to touch and try some things themselves.
After the visit they not only know now about density and that it is different for every metal but also, that not every metal is magnetic. Furthermore, the students now have an idea about the different metals that have an impact on the specific properties of steel when combined with the raw iron.
Finally, the students had the opportunity to stamp a coin, which they could take home with them.
We hope all the students had a great time at the Montanuniversität Leoben and we wish them all the best for their future!
