FGV Cambridge Nanosystems Exhibits in the “Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond” Exhibition at Manchester Museum of Science and Industry
FGV Cambridge Nanosystems was selected to partake in an exhibition of graphene technology at the upcoming “Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond” exhibition curated by the Manchester Museum of Science and Technology in partnership with the National Graphene Institute at The University of Manchester. This exhibition explores the wonders of graphene and 2D materials.
It is a flagship event of Manchester’s programme as European City of Science 2016 and opens to coincide with the EuroScience Open Forum Manchester 2016 (23-27 July), Europe’s largest interdisciplinary science meeting. The exhibition opens between on 23 – 25 July 2016 at Temporary Exhibition Space, First Floor, Great Western Warehouse in Manchester and offers free admission.
Graphene as the 21st century’s wonder material has the potential to radically reshape the way we think, design and manufacture in a host of areas – from racing cars to rust-free paint, from mobile phones to medical science.
This groundbreaking exhibition will help you discover the history of graphite and graphene, journey with scientists and artists exploring the cutting edge of material technology and immerse yourself in the wonders of a two dimensional world.
“Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond” will be accompanied by a year-round programme for adults, families and schools, including hands-on science events, evening science socials, “in conversation” style events and creative workshops. The exhibition will tour nationally and internationally, including going to the Science Museum, London, in 2018.
