The CSSM has proudly partnered with the Science History Institute to present a Google Arts & Culture Exhibit, titled Critical Metals: The Chemistry of Light. Click here to explore this exhibit now!
Over the course of the development of this project, trainees from Northwestern University and the University of Pennsylvania consulted with museum curator, Roger Turner, to design flow, content, and descriptions of the displayed items. The trainees had the opportunity to learn about communicating about important critical metals science with the science curious public and allowed the organization of the content to better reflect current trends and applications.
This exhibit is Part 1 of a two-part exhibit, with part 2 to be deployed in late 2022 or early 2023. Stay tuned!
