Seminar for highschool students “Cesta do hlubin chemie 2023”

Our lab of porous polymers together with our colleagues from the lab of polymer synthesis and biomaterials prepared a series of educational experiments from the field of polymer chemistry for high school students during the event “Cesta do hlubin chemie 2023”. The students tested several properties of common polymers, including the solubility of polystyrene in different solvents, the flammability of nitrocellulose, the water-absorption capacity of hydrogels like sodium polyacrylate and many more. After these lab exercises, students could test their freshly gained knowledge in Kahoot! quiz, while the winner was decorated with the “POLYMASTER 2023” title.
