Event Description

What do running across liquid, making ice cream in seconds, and bendable glass have to do with your day-to-day life?  The general public has the opportunity to find out this and more about how materials science and engineering impacts their world 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 4, 2017 from 10 am to 3 pm in the Bossone Research Enterprise Center at 3126 Market Street.

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 it 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 seventh year, the 2017 Philly Materials Day’s theme is “Materiality:  Exploring the Materials that Impact Your World.”
