After a break in 2022, Discover Materials are delighted to run a live, online event that can be streamed live into classrooms in the run up to the Winter break.

You can discover how best to pack baubles with Dan and even help Tess to select the best materials for Santa to use for the epic voyage across the globe.

Leah will be talking  about the fantastic material related to space exploration and you can discover how strong the chocolates in a selection box are with Amanda.

There will also be a live Q&A session where you can ask some of our fantastic Discover Materials Ambassadors anything to do with Materials Science and find out why they love the subject.

To sign up then please follow the Eventbrite link (which will let you join in the Zoom Webinar and get involved LIVE in the sessions).

There are only a limited number of tickets available on Eventbrite but if they are all sold out then you can follow the sessions LIVE on our YouTube channel.
