Cambridgeshire-based Goodfellow, a leading global research materials supplier, has launched a new educational resource focusing on research materials in STEM applications, with a range of short-form explainer videos on advanced materials (www.goodfellow.com
The company’s 20 materials in 2020
campaign sees the company publish the materials spotlight videos to YouTube twice monthly, detailing the structure, properties and applications of the 20 chosen materials, from graphene and lead-free C-Solder to platinum and gold.
The videos can be found on Goodfellow’s Youtube channel www.youtube.com/channel/UC8RJxmUjSe1AZaAiIab2YFw/videos
The first five videos have already been uploaded to Youtube and available to view. They focus on tantalum, barium Titanite, PLA, MACOR and graphene.
This latest resource follows the recent announcement of updates to Goodfellow’s educational app, Mr Material
, an interactive game aimed at testing the user’s scientific knowledge on the periodic table and all 118 elements.
Joel Aleixo, Goodfellow global marketing manager, said: “The videos are there to help people understand the basic structure and uses of a wide range of materials. They are another great educational resource with a lot of potential uses.
Researchers can learn something new about a material they have never worked with before, while students get the chance to see a concise and factual explanation of the application and usage of materials that are widely used within the scientific community.
“This campaign, along with the Mr Material
app, is there to help anybody in the community, whether you are a student, researcher, teacher or just have a general interest in science.”
