4th Saturday of the Month - ME2 Magnificent Materials and Exotic Engineering

Imagine plastic materials that act like human muscle or change their color like an octopus. Imagine materials that can sense sounds through walls, help control the flight of supersonic jets, or harvest energy. Join faculty from the College of Engineering at Florida A&M / Florida State University (Drs. William Oates, Ongi Englander, Jonathan Clark) for an interactive discussion on a broad variety of “smart” materials, nanoscience, and their applications in robotics, aerospace, and biology. We will have live demonstrations and interactions with the audience to demonstrate how new and exotic materials work and how they are applied to many engineering applications. Kids of all ages and their families are welcome to come and participate.
