      Abstract

      How do you melt metal? Inspired by the Salford Scientist James Joule, this event is a combination of science experiments, art workshop and exhibition all based around the transformation of metals from one state to another. The event builds upon an existing project run by University of Salford in partnership with CARISMA which has created badges from melted down guns to create a Wearpeace brand to address issues around gang related crimes. The Experiment Vacuum Evapouration - Various metals will be heated by an electrical current to produce a vapourised gas, that when cooled creates a metal coating. The audience will be able to select and create objects to be coated in a metal film Art Workshops Working with Product designers, workshop participants can have a go a creating moulds and casting using metals to create new objects that they can take away This event is part of Manchester Science Festival and has been supported through the Manchester Beacon Science Festival Community Awards 2010
