Frankenstein Materials Science Day

December 14, 2019, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This fun and interactive event features maker activities related to robotics, genetic engineering and electricity. By teaching a robot how to draw, experimenting with simple machines, or even bringing their own “creature” to life, participants will confront the same questions and ideas that bedeviled the fictional Victor Frankenstein on a dark and stormy night two centuries ago. Come create your own monstrous creatures, masks, speak with Mary Shelley herself and much more. The NSF-funded Princeton Center for Complex Materials believes that these activities provide today’s science learners with important tools for exploration, discovery, and critical thinking.

Presented in partnership with the Princeton University Center of Complex Materials and National Science Foundation, MRSEC.
