Magic of Materials Virtual Summer School 2021

While we can’t have everyone on site for our residential Magic of Materials Summer School we can share with you the associated exciting programme of lectures over three days: Monday 12 July – Wednesday 14 July.

Over the course of three days join us for six talks delivered by academics and industry experts from the world of materials science. All sessions are designed to be accessible to able GCSE and A Level students who are all welcome. Please see the timetable below for more details.

All of the sessions will be held via a Zoom webinar. To attend the virtual Magic of Materials Summer School, participants must register in advance using the form below. Only one registration is needed to attend all of the sessions as they will be delivered using the same Zoom link. If you cannot make some or all of the sessions but would like to watch them, please still sign up to receive a follow-up link to watch the session at a later date.
