The Department hosts two main web-based resources:

  • Dissemination of IT for the Promotion of Materials Science, referred to as DoITPoMS, aims to provide a wide range of online materials to help teaching and learning of materials science. These range from micrographs for educational purposes, to video clips, through to an extensive collection of interactive "teaching and learning" packages, known as TLPs. These are aimed primarily at undergraduate level teaching and are freely available via the internet.
  • SeeK (Science and Engineering Expermiments for Kids. SeeK is no longer able to offer workshops in local schools, however, it continues to provide details of their science workshop activities online at no cost. These ideas are aimed at primary school teachers and young families.
