Fantastic Plastic

Date: Tue 7 Nov 2017, 10:45 - 15:30

What's the link between Lego™ blocks, zero pollution cars, disposable nappies, liquids that flow up hill, and false legs? How is this linked to the perfect recipe for slime? And how can you use all this to make a Million?
The lecture is designed to match the Science National Curriculum at Key Stage 4 and bring in elements of Enterprise. The 1-hour demonstration lecture for GCSE covering polymers - and enterprise - from Professor Averil MacDonald is followed by a 30 minute talk about materials science.
If you are interested in bringing a group of year 10 or 11 students to one of these lectures please email the outreach team:
