Ceramographic Exhibit & Competition entry open Start working on those entries for the 2014 Ceramographic Exhibit & Competition, organized by ACerS Basic Science Division, to be held at MS&T14 in October. This annual exhibit promotes the use of microscopy and microanalysis as tools in the scientific investigation of ceramic materials. Visit www.ceramics.org/awards. n Potters Council and AACS: Where art and science connect What do cutting-edge materials research and the investigation of ancient ceramics have in common? More than you might think, and the connections are the basis of a new ACerS membership type that allows members of Potters Council (a subsidiary of ACerS) to join the Art, Archaeology, and Conservation Science Division. Thanks to a change made to the ACerS Constitution last October, Potters Council members who have an interest in cultural heritage and conservation science can participate as full AACS Division members by attending Division meetings, sharing ideas, exploring new developments in the field, and discovering the many connections between art and science, side-by-side with ACerS materials scientists and engineers. Within the first 24 hours of being notified of this new opportunity, 26 Potters Council members had signed up—and more are joining every day. “AACS is great for anyone working in or interested in cultural heritage and archaeology since by joining they will have at their fingertips the vast resources and educational experiences available through The American Ceramic Society,” says AACS 2014 chair Marc Walton. “They will also be part of a dynamic and exciting community composed of chemists, materials scientists, and artists all working at the highest levels of their respective professions but united by the common goal of preserving and better understanding our material past.” ACerS members can add AACS to their membership for only $10 per year. To join, contact customer service at customerservice@ceramics.org, or 866- 721-3322 (U.S.) or 240-646-7054 (outside U.S.). n PCSA science kits for sale The new materials science and engineering outreach kits developed by ACerS’s President’s Council of Student Advisors are a great addition to your individual or organizational STEM outreach activities.
