  MAKING STUFF STRONGER 

 Saturday, November 24, 2018

 10:00am-12Noon


 

What is the strongest material in the world? Is it steel, Kevlar, carbon nanotubes, or something entirely new? Scientists are learning to combine the engineering tricks found in the living world with the incredible strength of our own inventions. With these new tools and materials, there’s no telling what we’ll be able to accomplish.  

 

Come to the New Mexico PBS November Science Café and watch a segment of NOVA Making Stuff Stronger and then join in a discussion with Dr. Erik Spoerke, an R&D Materials Scientist in the Optical, Electronic, and Nano Materials Department at Sandia National Laboratories. Dr. Spoerke will discuss and demonstrate key scientific principles that affect strength in the materials we count on every day, and he’ll explore what’s behind the incredible properties of natural materials, such as bones, seashells, and spiderwebs, which continue to inspire new high-tech research in materials engineering today.

                                                                                                

Admission to the café is free, but a reservation is required.  Questions? Contact Rose Poston at 277-2396 or rposton@nmpbs.org. Seats are limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.

 

Be more curious…be more amazed..come to the New Mexico PBS Science Café.
