Demonstration of electrospinning fibers at MITS

May 26, 2008 (United States Of America)

MITS Summer Institute Professional Development for PreK-8 Educators will be held on July 9, 2008.

Explore how science has studied nature’s successful processes and copied them to achieve technological advancements in the field of textiles.

Historically, we will see how studying the silkworm and spider led to making synthetic fibers and materials in the laboratory.

In present day science, we’ll explore current cutting-edge work on modern extreme fabrics, including textile-relevant developments in nanotechnology and biomimetics.

See a demonstration of electrospinning fibers so fine they are almost invisible. We’ll also consider associated environmental impacts, and the interface with recycling.

Teachers will earn PDPs for this course, which is part of a two-week syllabus with cooperating MITS partners for the Merrimack Region.
