Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day

In conjunction with the NOVA TV science program, the Penn MRSEC
collaborated with Penn and Drexel University Materials Science
Departments to arrange the first Philly Materials Science & Engineering Day
on Feb. 5, 2011, which introduced the general public in the
Philadelphia region to the world of materials. An extensive program was
arranged that included demonstrations from many LRSM graduate research
groups. More than 30 MRSEC faculty, staff and students participated. In
addition, a series of 11 talks and science demonstrations were
presented, lecture style, by Penn and Drexel faculty together with a
local science TV personality, Grand Hank. Over 1000 people participated
in this outreach effort, which will now be repeated annually.
