Explore Energy, Sports and More at the Sixth Annual Philly Materials Day
Saturday, February 6, 2016
10:00 AM-4:00 PM
Running across liquid, making ice cream in seconds, and bendable glass may sound like special effects from a movie, but these “tricks” can be attributed to the very real field of materials science and engineering. The general public has the opportunity to try these and more at the annual Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day (Philly Materials Day), to be hosted at Drexel University.
Free and open to the public, the event will take place on Saturday, February 6, 2016 from 10 am to 4 pm in the Bossone Research Enterprise Center at 31st and Market Streets.
Philly Materials Day raises public awareness of the importance of materials science and engineering. Nearly everything in the world around us is made of something—stuff. Materials science and engineering is the study of that stuff —materials—and how we use the stuff to create useful things for everyday life. The event allows people of all ages a chance to explore some of the stuff the world is made of and to learn about how materials impact us every day. Now entering its sixth year, the 2016 Philly Materials Day will organize activities around five key themes: communication, earth, energy, health, and sports.
