Materials Week #3

supporting programme

Ceramics: Piezo

Wednesday, 4 October–Sunday, 8 October 2017
Workshops 4–6 pm
Stahlhaus Dessau-Törten

Industrially produced piezo elements are multifunctional ceramics with many exciting characteristics. The material can, for instance, produce small amounts of energy or oscillate so fast that the vibrations can be heard. The workshops in the third Materials Week will introduce experts and amateurs to the piezo effect. In sound experiments materials will be made to chime. The week will end with a presentation and an expert’s lecture on the topics of sound and material.
