Safety in technology and chemistry

#Girls´Day #Jepp # Research at BAM certainly is exciting

15 years of Girls'Day – Girls'Day and the Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM) have been partners for over 10 years. BAM‘s scientists will take 40 girls on a journey into the wonderful world of research into safety in technology and chemistry. They will do simple experiments to understand how fibre optic sensors are used for monitoring structures. We will show them the tests which containers must withstand to be considered safe for transport of dangerous substances. They will learn to print bones with a 3D printer and see whether they are as strong as their own bones.

Van Gogh‘s yellow stays!

The Swedish petition on banning cadmium in artist's paints finds no support within the European Chemicals Agency. The petitioner calculates that 110 kg out of the 7.4 tonnes cadmium being released into the environment stem from artist’s paints. This is so little that both committees, RAC and SEAC, have opposed a ban on cadmium yellow as an artist’s colour.
