Materials and Structures
manufacturing and mechanics contribute to sustainable society
dedicated to delivering the new science and technology to next
generations and their teachers. We work closely with USC Viterbi outreach
office on various STEM projects through
VAST program (Viterbi
Adopt-a-School Adopt-a-Teacher). In our outreach activities, K-12 students
and teachers have hands-on experience within our ongoing research projects.
The essential goal is to inspire their interest in science and technology
and to promote new generation of scientists and engineers. During the
outreach program, we pay special attention to involving students from
underrepresented populations in science and engineering to enter the
exciting new field of research.

Hospital Medical Magnet High School is ranked 113rd within
California. Students have the opportunity to take Advanced Placement
course work and exams. The student Body Makeup is 40 percent male and 60
percent female and total minority enrollment is 99 percent. On Sep 2
2015, We stopped by Ortho to interact with K12 students and teachers to
discuss how to take advantage of the emerging additive manufacturing
techniques to design artificial organs.
