Th4: Materials in Action / Dr Diane Aston, Head of Education and Professional Development at IOM3 / KS3-KS5
Materials play a central role in our lives, but to a great extent we take them very much for granted. How often do you consider the engineering and science that has gone into producing all the things around you? In this presentation we will explore how the use of these biocompatible materials have helped change and improve the technology that we rely on by looking at how they are used in computers, aircraft, sports equipment and medical devices. The use of biocompatible materials inside our body has allowed us to improve the quality of life of millions of people and we are now able to successfully replace joints, lenses and even blood vessels. Join us on a journey of discovery. This session is suitable for all teachers and trainee teachers.
We will offer a varied programme of workshops, shows and presentations between 1.30pm pm and 8pm each evening Monday- Friday. For more details and a full e-programme please visit https://www.talkphysics.org/groups/talking-physics/forum/topic/welsh-physics-teachers-conference-brecon-2021/
