BGS Open Science Lecture series: Primeval Slime
Tue 4 April 2017, 18:00 – 19:30 BST
You are invited to the first of Bradford Grammar School's new Open Science Lectures.
Everybody loves slime! In this lecture, Dr Mike Ries of the University of Leeds will tell you all about the wonderful properties of slime. In a demo-rich talk he will shatter your understanding of the material world.
Can a liquid bounce?
A solid flow?
A solution shatter:
Polymers are long chain molecules that give slime its wonderful range of properties. Polymers can be found all around you. They are in shopping bags, muscles, skin, fleas, cars, computers and in each and every cell of your body! If you want to understand how life works, then you need to discover polymer physics!
The talk will be followed by a Q&A session and refreshments.
