Don’t miss Fantastic Plastics at Daresbury Laboratory!

Fantastic Plastics, is a 1-hour demonstration lecture for GCSE covering polymers & enterprise from Professor Averil MacDonald.

Possibly the most successful GCSE lecture in the UK is coming again to Daresbury Laboratory on Thursday 15th November available at 10.30 am or 1.30 pm.

What’s the link between disposable nappies and flat screen TVs, between hair gel and saving the environment? This lecture looks at the often surprising things that Plastics can do and questions whether plastics are as bad as they are painted in the media. And how can you use all this to make a Million?

The lecture is designed to match the Science National Curriculum at Key Stage 4 and bring in elements of Enterprise. The show lasts 1 hour and includes loads of interesting demonstrations. It is FREE courtesy of Manchester Polymer Group, a local society of the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining and The Worshipful Company of Horners  in conjunction with All About STEM
