Princeton Materials Research Society Student Chapter (PUMRS)

Do you like matter? Do you find yourself in constant contact with objects that take up physical space and have mass? Are you dependent on solid, liquid and/or gaseous substances to live?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you should join the Princeton Materials Research Society. PUMRS is an active club that sponsors field trips, course advising and nerdy fun. We are also a great resource for those considering a Materials Science certificate. For more information, please contact PUMRS.
