  • Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day 2018

    10:00 AM-3:00 PM

    Bossone Research Enterprise Center at 3126 Market Street

    • Everyone

    The annual hands-on science and engineering event, Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day (Philly Materials Day), will be hosted at Drexel University on Saturday, February 3, 2018. Free and open to the public, the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. in the Bossone Research Enterprise Center at 3126 Market Street. What do running across liquid, making ice cream in seconds, and bendable glass have to do with your day-to-day life? You can find out all these things and more about how materials science and engineering impacts the world at the annual Philly Materials Day. 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 and how we use it to create useful things for everyday life. The event allows people of all ages to explore some of the materials that the world is made of and to learn about how materials affect us every day. Now entering its eighth year, the 2018 Philly Materials Day will include drop-in hands-on demonstrations for all and small group workshops geared to kids ages 10 to 17. Workshop participants will work in teams to explore how the materials have an impact on their lives. The day also features a special performance at 11 a.m. mixing hip-hop and materials science with scientist performer Grand Hank. Drexel University’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering will host the event, along with the University of Pennsylvania, the Franklin Institute, the Academy of Natural Sciences of Drexel University, the Nuclear Regulatory Commission, and other organizations.

  • Green Infrastructure, Climate and Cities Series

    Wednesday, March 7, 2018

    4:00 PM-6:00 PM

    Hill Conference Room Room 240, LeBow Engineering Center 31st and Market Streets Philadelphia, PA 19104

    "Neighborhood Approaches to Adaptation" Peggy Shepard, WEACT The seminar series focuses on urban solutions to global problems associated with increasing temperature and sea level rise, precipitation variability and greenhouse gas emissions. We are interested in the implications of such changes on the complex infrastructure of intensely developed landscapes and on the health, well-being, and vulnerability of the people who live in them. Speakers will include both researchers and practitioners, all of whom have new ideas on how to promote resilient, livable and sustainable cities. The seminar on March 7, 2018 will focus on neighborhood approaches to adaptation. Following the presentations, there will be a question and answer session.
