Conference Call Number: 641-715-3200
Access Code: 768714#
EWB-USA is seeking a volunteer who is a metallurgist and would be able  
to provide technical support in evaluation of the behavior of metals  
used in manufacturing children's metal toys (not paint).
Specifically, this member should have some experience with the  
disintegration properties of metals in various conditions.
This request is on behalf of Sciencecorps and is not for a specific  
community but is in support of state and federal actions regarding  
heavy metals in children's products. At issue is the production of  
imports made from scrap metal in Asia and Africa are increasing and  
some products may pose high hazards to both children and adults due to  
the metal mixture.
This project will look at the metallurgy associated with these imports  
- will something disintegrate under various conditions based on its  
composition? Which leads to the question of bioavailability - how much  
will be absorbed and what is the target organ.
The time commitments are variable and will be determined in  
conjunction with Sciencecorps once the number of available volunteers  
are known. It may range from a few hours of research to review of  
testing methodology and results.
