Polymer Day 2013
Date: Wednesday March 6, 2013
Polymer Day is MIT’s annual showcase of the latest in cross-disciplinary, cutting edge discoveries in polymer science and engineering. Synthesized polymers are found in a startling range of industries, from biomedicine to automobile manufacturing.
Polymer day is open to all members of the community. So please join us in celebrating the exciting and far-reaching innovations underway all across campus by attending this year’s event. Light refreshments will be served at all events, and we look forward to seeing you there.
