Xperimania II: the benefits of chemistry in every day life

The second year of Xperimania, a campaign to raise young people’s interest in chemistry, will be launched early October 2008 following the prize ceremony for the school year 2007-2008. This year’s competition activity will concentrate on the properties of materials: Why are some products resistant to shocks, stains or flames? Students are asked to focus on every day objects and their specific properties.

Through experiments, they will identify materials with such properties and find out about their use in everyday life.

And not to forget: Xperimania’s multilingual online chats with scientific experts, looking at a range of exciting topics related to materials and petrochemistry.
