Science hidden in materials

29. 9. 2017, Bratislava, Stará tržnica

Introducing the fascinating world of the inner structure and composition of materials ingeniously created by man to serve him.
Visitors could observe structure of various materials in microscopes, including the metal microstructures with popular explanation by experts. They had opportunity to learn about the relationship between the structure of materials and their properties as well as about the development of new materials with predetermined properties that allow for the creation of otherwise unachievable products and facilities that contribute to making our world an increasingly better place for life.
