Chicago Museum of Science and Industry

In May 2010, Chicago's Museum of Science and Industry opened a new exhibit called Science Storms. The Atoms portion of this exhibit features an epoxy polymer sample containing microcapsules with cores that are dyed red for enhanced visualization. The samples, which are shown below, are part of this permanent exhibit. Additionally, we have supplied the museum staff with pac men samples and mechanophore-containing polymers, which they have used in demonstrations with high school teachers from around the country.
