Ph.D. Student Steven Spurgeon Publishes Materials Day Article in the MRS Bulletin

 Making LN2 ice cream at Philly Materials Day 2012

An article by Ph.D. student Steven Spurgeon (advisor: Mitra Taheri) titled “Drexel hosts Philly Materials Day” appeared in the October 2012 issue of the MRS Bulletin. In it he describes the collaborative efforts of Drexel and the University of Pennsylvania to plan and execute the day-long festivities, which seek to educate and excite people of all ages about the intriguing world of materials science.  The article quotes Associate Department Head Richard Knight, the event's emcee, saying, “The age-old problem we find is that people have no concept of what materials science and engineering is, but once you explain and show people, they have a better idea. They begin to realize then that everything is made of materials and there’s a reason why we choose the materials we do.”

Planning for the 2013 Philly Materials Day, scheduled for February 2, 2013, is now underway. More information can be found at www.phillymaterials.org.
