Speakers: Dr Nicole Grobert & Dr Jonathan Hare
In society the element carbon is probably best known as “Diamonds are a girls best friends“ and as graphite which is commonly used in pencils.
However, the last 25 years have seen a revolution in our understanding of the element carbon and many other forms of carbon have been discovered. This workshop will explore the world of carbon, and it will introduce you to the other carbon materials and their potential for future technological application.
The Carbon Revolution is aimed at 16-19 year olds and is a lecture cum workshop by Dr Nicole Grobert (University of Oxford, Department of Materials) and Dr Jonathan Hare, a freelance research scientist.
Tea/Coffee from 18:00. Booking is essential.
