Materials Safari (ft. Anna Ploszajski)

Mar 06, 2017, 06:25 PM

All aboard as materials scientist Anna Ploszajski takes us on a tour of her favourite materials! From the ancient art of metallurgy and the alloy that created an era (hint: it begins with a B...), to the power of concrete on our emotions and the invention of plastic by snooker players, we discover there's more to our surroundings than meets the eye. We also learn about Anna's research into hydrogen storage and create some hydrogen of our own using just a 9V battery and some salt water!
