Saturday, Feb. 6 will mark the sixth year for Philly Materials Science and Engineering Day. The event is a chance for all ages to learn more about everyday objects, like plates, computers and cars. Sure, we use them daily but do we understand how these inventions really work?
There will be insightful demonstrations, like high-speed ice cream making with liquid nitrogen, but many of the activities will be hands-on. One will be "Walking on Liquid," where attendees can step into a pool of oobleck, named for the Dr. Seuss book “Bartholomew and the Oobleck."
The event is free to attend and runs from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
