Humans have been modifying the properties of materials for thousands of years. In modern times, scientists have learned more about what gives materials their unique properties, and this has opened up possibilities for designing materials with interesting properties. In this workshop we will explore some of these exciting materials and will investigate what happens to these materials when we change the temperature or expose the material to water and UV light.
