From 7 to 9 November, the Science Film Festival takes place at the German International School LLC Doha
Theme 2016: Material Science
The Science Film Festival received 181 submissions from 46 countries this year. It invites to enjoy the best in international science communication and to explore this year’s theme of MATERIAL SCIENCE – understanding how materials are put together, how they can be used and how they can be changed!
Throughout human history, new materials have revolutionized our world. Whenever craftspersons, manufacturers and scientists got hold of new materials it allowed them to create new things that had not been possible before. But what are the next new materials that will change our world?
You could call material science the study of stuff! Just about everything you use every day – the shoes you wear, the dishes you eat from, the phone you use – it’s all made of different kinds of stuff. Understanding how the materials are put together, how they can be used, how they can be changed and made better to do more amazing things – even creating completely new kinds of stuff: that’s what materials science is all about.
