Time is running out to see this great exhibit. It's a close encounter with the world of materials science. In this amazing exhibition you'll learn why Post-It notes stick and Teflon doesn't, try to smash a pane of glass with a bowling ball, play with liquids that defy gravity, magnify things and see what they look like using the "scope on a rope," see how crystals grow, and check out the lightest solid in the world called "aerogel," also known as "frozen smoke." It's all part of the world of "materials science" which is part science, engineering, applied physics, chemistry, as well as chemical, mechanical, civil and electrical engineering. And just to make things exciting there's plenty of nanoscience and nanotechnology to go around.
