Exhibition Name:

Wonder Materials: Graphene and Beyond

Description: Graphene is just one atom thick, yet it is the strongest, lightest and most conductive material on Earth. Since the world’s first two-dimensional material was isolated in 2004, graphene has triggered a global surge in research into a whole new realm of two-dimensional wonder materials that have life-changing potential. This turnkey exhibition takes visitors on a journey of creative inspiration and scientific discovery using a combination of fascinating objects, interactives, photographs and film.

Wonder Materials is arranged in four sections:
1) Past provides historical context and presents Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov, the Nobel Prize winders whose playful approach to physics uncovered graphene.
2) Present introduces six scientists researching graphene and examines the challenges of transferring innovation from the lab to industry.
3) Future showcases current products incorporating graphene and encourages visitors to think about how this wonder material might change the way we live in the future.
4) The Hive, an integrated learning space, provides visitors with the chance for fun, hands-on exploration of concepts related to graphene and materials science. A packet of educational activities is provided. The exhibition primarily consists of contemporary and historical objects, videos and interactives. This fascinating exhibition brings materials science to life and appeals to adults, families and school groups with children aged 8+.
