On its 3rd year at CORROSION, NACE West Asia & Africa Area presented the Middle East and Africa Forum with the theme of “Music Revolution: The Harmony of Corrosion Control and Mega Projects in the Middle East and Africa.”
Even the foremost corrosion control experts of today had to start somewhere in learning about their chosen field. With that in mind, the NACE Foundation hosted a mini-camp for high school students in the Nashville,Tennessee area to increase their knowledge and awareness of corrosion-based topics.
