Everything around us - the clothes we wear, the computers we use, the vehicles that transport us, the hip implants and artificial heart valves that improve our health - is made of stuff. Materials science and engineering is the study of that stuff: what it's made of, why it behaves the way it does, and what we can do with it. Materials scientists and engineers make our daily lives better by developing materials for health and medicine, improved energy efficiency and advanced manufacturing, among other areas.
2020 marks the tenth anniversary of Philly Materials Day, focusing on hands-on activities for all ages and special small group workshops geared to ages 10 and up where participants will work on teams exploring how specific materials impact their world. Check out photos of past events and join us for this year's fun!
