guides try tribology

Approximately 50 girl guides from five local groups spent a day at the University attending three different workshops and having a tour of the engineering facilities.

nC2 staff and nCATS phD students once again ran the very popular Try Tribology workshop.  The girl guides were introduced to tribology and the impact it has on our every day lives, they then got to perform some hands on experiments to learn more about friction, wear, design and bearings.
