Test stuff, break stuff, mix stuff, heat stuff… and discover how strange matter can be!
Strange Matter, our newest hands-on exhibition, uses science to explore the bizarre world of modern materials and offers a glimpse into where the future might take us.
Dive into the world of materials science — the study of “stuff.” A dynamic blend of physics, chemistry and engineering, this field of research studies how things are put together, how they might be improved, or how they can be changed to create brand new materials.
• Zoom down to the micro level and find out why Post-It® notes stick and Teflon doesn’t
• Play with liquids that defy gravity and morph mysteriously
• Discover what your skull and soap bubbles have in common
• Whack an atom and try to smash a pane of heat-tempered glass with a bowling ball
• And so much more!
