The University of Minnesota Materials Advantage Chapter is looking for a 2 - 4 L dewar to use for transporting liquid nitrogen to outreach events/demonstrations. Either a used dewars or the money to purchase a dewar is acceptable. Estimated costs for a dewar are $600 - 800.
Materials Advantage is a student program that is a collaboration of ASM, TMS, ACerS, and AIST. Effectively, the student chapters for each of these societies have combined. Thus, the Materials Advantage chapter serves as our chapter's tie to the University of Minnesota.
