PPG Foundation supports AMPP’s EMERG Programs

The Association for Materials Protection and Performance (AMPP) has revealed a substantial donation from the PPG Foundation aimed at bolstering the EMERG Programs designed to aid students in the coatings industry.

EMERG, an acronym for Engage, Magnetize, Educate, Raise, Guide, represents AMPP’s holistic approach to involving students of all levels in the captivating realm of materials protection and performance. It offers diverse opportunities, including scholarships, innovative educational resources like the cKit™, and interactive mini-camps providing hands-on learning experiences.

The cKit™, a dynamic educational tool developed by AMPP, is tailored for high school teachers to vividly illustrate corrosion concepts, making science more accessible and enjoyable for students. It encompasses all necessary materials for experiments, fostering engagement and understanding.

EMERG academic scholarships, designed to acknowledge and support students exhibiting exceptional academic achievement in coatings and corrosion, play a crucial role in paving the way for future industry leaders.

PPG’s backing of EMERG programs signifies its substantial impact on the industry’s trajectory, contributing to heightened material protection, performance enhancements, and the attainment of sustainability goals.
