CENTENNIAL, CO, Feb. 27, 2006 -- The American Galvanizers Association (AGA) recently produced a University Tool Kit for engineering and architecture professors. The comprehensive corrosion guides will aid professors in educating their students on corrosion protection.

The free tool kit provides professors with all the resources required to present an introductory lecture on corrosion protection and the use of hot-dip galvanized steel.

The kit includes:
• a brochure providing information on the tool kit and the AGA PowerPoint course/lesson on corrosion protection
• A binder containing a course outline, notes, quiz, and handouts to enhance the lesson information and an application for the AGA Galvanize the Future scholarship samples of hot-dip galvanized steel
• An interactive CD on designing with galvanized steel.

"The tool kits are designed to give engineering and architecture students a general understanding of corrosion protection and hot-dip galvanized steel," AGA Marketing Manager, John Krzywicki said, "And by providing all the resources needed to teach the course, it allows professors to easily insert the lesson into their curriculum."

The AGA initially sent tool kits to 300 professors in the United States and Canada, targeting architecture, civil engineering, metallurgical engineering, structural engineering, and material science programs. Architecture and engineering professors can obtain a free kit, while supplies last, by contacting Melissa Lindsley, AGA Marketing Coordinator, at mlindsley@galvanizeit.org.

Founded in 1935, the AGA (www.galvanizeit.org), based in Centennial, CO, is a nonprofit trade association dedicated to serving the needs of fabricators, architects, specifiers, and engineers, providing technical support on today's innovative applications and state-of-the-art technological developments in hot-dip galvanizing for corrosion control.
