Event description
Material scientist Anna Ploszajski explores what generations of craftspeople have discovered from experimenting with various materials.

About this event

Science has given us a good understanding of the properties of many different materials. It’s the people who know what it feels like to blow up a balloon of glass or measure the temperature of steel just by looking at it.

Join material scientist Anna Ploszajski as she explores the hands-on trial and error that has been built on by generation after generation of experimenters and tinkerers as they understand the materiality of objects far more than any scientist with a textbook.

In this talk, Anna discusses the materials we encounter every day and the young women and craftspeople who are at the forefront of materials science.
