Materials Science Live Show!


As part of the Resonate Festival organised by the Warwick Institute of Engagement Phil livestreamed a materials science show into local primary and secondar schools. Demonstrating how the materials that make up the world around us and how science can make materials behave in strange ways – this show is not to be missed.

Blurb: Show me what you’re made of! (School show for ages 9-11) How do you decide what to make something out of? Why do some things bend or squish or stretch or bounce while other things don’t? Or what about magnets – they only work on some things and not others! There’s a whole world going on inside the objects around us that changes how they behave. If we want to build things that will help us make the world a healthy green planet, we need to know which materials to choose.

Will there be more events like this in the future? There’s a mini version of this show as part of the Global Science Show too (link here) and if there are schools interested in a live stream science show – you should get in touch!
