Event description
Discover and explore the wonderful world of Materials Science this Winter with our line up of great live events and talks.

About this Event

This Winter join Discover Materials to explore a range of Materials Science and Engineering themes ranging from the tiny, seeing into the fabric of things through a microscope, to even understanding how fairy lights work!

There will be a fun and interactive series of live and prerecorded content on our social media and YouTube channels where we will share how the materials used in musical instruments manipulate sound, the physics of custard, and lots more. There really will be something for everyone.

On the 15th December 2020 we are hosting a Live Event day that will include the following:

Live microscopy - join us live in Swansea to peer through a microscope at everyday objects (and even send in suggestion of what you would you would like to be looked at)

Winter talks - an exciting range of short talks by experts in the field of Materials Science and Engineering to demonstrate the relevance of the field

Materials Quiz - test your knowledge in the Material Science and Engineering Quiz (it could make a great end of term treat!)

Live Q&A session - an expert panel will answer your questions about careers in science and engineering, where to study and discuss how material science is integral to everyday life.

We are also running a competition to design a winter-themed decorative item out of sustainable, reusable materials that you find at home. Enter for a chance to win awesome Materials Science themed prizes. More information can be found www.discovermaterials.uk.

With a mix of pre-recorded and live content there is something for everyone to get involved in, whatever time of the day you wish to log on.
