eXplore Engineering 2018


eXtraordinary Metals Workshop

Have you ever seen an ordinary item do something totally unexpected?  In the world of materials, we are always finding new ways to make substances with surprising properties.  In this workshop, you will use real research tools – high magnification microscopes, cryogenic substances, rare earth magnets, and more – to see that everyday materials can be far from ordinary!
