Unleash your artistic skills to create your own colourful metal keychain in this workshop exploring corrosion.
Corrosion is a major issue in engineering, causing broken pipelines, collapsed bridges and sinking ships, leading to huge consequences for our environment. In this workshop, learn about the different approaches scientists are exploring to tackle the corrosion problem in metals. Using various chemical reactions between copper and common household items, you will create uniquely colourful keychains to take home.
This event will have some advance tickets released ahead of the Festival weekend.
