Student Activities Planned for TMS2021 Virtual

It’s Not All Zoom & Gloom Student Trivia Contest

Date: Monday, March 15
Time: 2:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. EDT
Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this fun student trivia competition. Like the Materials Bowl typically held at the TMS Annual Meeting, this event tests students knowledge of all things related to materials and TMS. Unlike the annual Materials Bowl, this event is open to all students participating in TMS2021. No advance sign-up is required, and you don't need a team to compete. Just try to correctly answer as many of the multiple-choice questions as you can. The top three scores will receive prizes. See you there!

Student Poster Contest

Date: Monday, March 15
Browse your fellow students' work and submit questions during the Monday evening poster contest session. Students who submitted posters for this event will receive additional details from the TMS Programming Team on how to upload and present their work. (Please note that the deadline to submit posters for this session has already passed.)

Student Career Forum

Date: Tuesday, March 16
Time: 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. EDT
Join us to hear from early-career professionals, as they offer advice and share stories of how they arrived at their current positions. Then find answers to your questions during the live Q&A portion of the session.

Preparing a Winning Resume Package
