The LRSM, in collaboration with the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Pennsylvania, Materials Science & Engineering Department at Drexel University, Penn's Nano/Bio Interface Center, WHYY, and industry, are promoting NOVA's four-part TV series on materials called "Making Stuff with David Pogue" which starts on Jan 19 at 9:00 pm on WHYY. Please encourage your classes to tune in to this series.
As part of our effort, we are organizing a "Philly Materials Day" at the Bossone Center, Drexel University on Feb. 5, 2011 from 10:00am -4:00 pm. This will involve tables of materials demos by faculty and students from the groups mentioned plus some contributions from local industry. In addition to the demos, there will be lectures and demos going on all day in two theaters in the Center. Please encourage all your students, and their parents, to attend this FREE event, which will be sponsored annually from now on (depending on its success). Please look at and/or download the attached flyers.
