Experience Elastomers Program Sponsorship

Experience Elastomers: A Day of STEM-Based Rubber Inquiries is a component of our 2017 International Elastomer Conference, which will provide hands on experiments that students from grades 9-12 can perform and learn more about the rubber industry in the process. We are inviting area high school students to the conference to enjoy a day of STEM-based rubber learning with the goal of igniting interest and passion for the rubber industry. Interactive tours of the expo floor will also take place.
