Welcome to materialsGIRL - a community enthusiastic about making materials.
We encourage anyone interested in learning about materials to join, regardless of your education, background, discipline or specialty. GIRL stands for Group Interaction Reinforces Learning - we hope to develop tools to promote scientific understanding, collaboration & discourse. Materials science is an interdisciplinary field, we hope curious students, chemists, physicists, biologists, engineers, artists, designers & makers will engage in this experiment.
Each category is organized around a central, thematic question. For now, we are starting with just a few, in hopes of fostering meaningful discussion. We welcome suggestions of new questions/categories in the Site Feedback section. This site is run on discourse - we like it a lot.
