Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day, Feb 1

Posted by Drexel University on January 14, 2020

You’re invited to a FREE day of hands-on Science & Engineering Fun for all ages!

Join us at the tenth annual Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day to explore the materials that impact your world at a day of FREE hands-on science and engineering fun for all ages!

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.

This year’s event features 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.

Date and Time: Saturday, February 1, 2020, 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.

Location: Drexel University, Bossone Research Enterprise Center, 3140 Market Street, Philadelphia, PA
