Event description
Join Mark Miodownik and colleagues from UCL’s Institute of Making for an exploration into the amazing world of Materials Science.

About this event

You maybe haven’t learnt much about Materials Science at school, but so much of our world depends on it, from how your toilet flushes to why a lightbulb produces light. Mark Miodownik and colleagues from UCL’s Institute of Making will introduce you to this fascinating topic and explore some of the exciting ways materials will shape our future, from self-healing roads to tackling ocean plastics. They will also discuss what their day-to-day life is like as researchers, why they chose to work in this field, and how they got into their jobs. A perfect event for any teenagers interested in a career in science.

Mark Miodownik is a materials engineer and Professor of Materials and Society at UCL where he teaches and runs a research group. He presented in the 2010 CHRISTMAS LECTURES.

Please note, this livestream is aimed at a family audience, and so is starting at an earlier time of 5.00pm.
