Emma Hedley: "Why do phone batteries fail?"
The Making Materials Matter Webinars are the newest addition to our outreach programme and offer students in KS3 (Yr7-9) the chance to explore cutting-edge research in Materials Science. Each webinar this December will be given by a researcher at the University of Oxford Department of Materials and will focus on a topic within Materials Science and it's current applications, providing insight into what Materials Scientists really do whilst linking back to what students are learning in school and how this is being used to solve real world problems.
These webinars are aimed at students in KS3 so the science content of the talks will be focused at that level. However you are more than welcome to join even if you are not in KS3, and teachers and parents are welcome too. Each webinar is 30 minutes long in total and will include plenty of time for all your questions!
