Material Matter(s)!

08 May 2013

Until the end of May the exhibition Material Matter(s)! will be on show at Science LinX in the Bernoulliborg, where visitors can interactively discover magical materials. They can be super-strong or sticky, lightweight or fireproof – whatever they are, materials are what the world is made of. While their properties may be invisible to the naked eye, the very tiniest building blocks are indeed magical! The exhibition was developed for HAVO and VWOupper secondary classes and can be visited free of charge between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m.

The weekly online video magazine Unifocus highlights topics related to the University of Groningen in the fields of research and society, student life, teaching, policy and internationalization.
