In the Spring of 2022, Kyle and Rachel organized an exhibit for the UW College of Engineering, Engineering Expo. The Expo was over two days, the first of which catered to local middle school students, and the second was open to the public.
The exhibit was titled, “Playing with Plastics: How Scientists Make Meaningful Materials.” We wanted to help visitors understand the chemical and physical differences between commonly encountered plastics. Interactive demonstrations included making slime, vat and extrusion 3D printing, and dissolving packing peanuts. The whole group helped out with the exhibit and was awarded 3rd place by a panel of judges.
