Raspberry pies, Java beans, and Ada fruits: what if we could make technologies that are ‘safe enough to eat’? Interested in ‘baking’ technologies with different, unexpected, and everyday materials? Then join the University of Lancaster crew @ Cambridge Science Festival on 21st March, 11am-3.30pm!
We will bring a kit jam-packed with tools to include accelerometers, gyroscopes, and ‘sensor mimics’; ingredients from the kitchen cupboard such as corn starch and glycerol, as well as industrial PLAs and bio-plastic. Do bring your imagination, help us to combine 3D printed shapes, mix materials, and come up with new technology prototypes that are safe to eat and good to wear. Let’s start a technology revolution in the kitchen!
Meet the team at the Cambridge Science Festival on Saturday 21 March: 11:00am – 3:30pm. Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy, 27 Charles Babbage Road, CB3 0FS
