Presenter: Jacob Darius, Kimberly-Clark
There’s a lot of chemistry and cool materials in everyday life that we don’t notice, and they are all made of a type of compound called Polymers. From plastic bags to diapers, these are found all over, and I will explain the basics of polymers with some demonstrations and activities before having an interactive experiment to determine how impressive a certain polymer is.
Jacob Darius is a Process Engineer with Kimberly-Clark making Kleenex tissues 4.5 hours away in New Milford, CT. He is a recent graduate of SUNY ESF with a degree in Paper Engineering, which is a specialized fusion of chemical engineering and material science focused on making paper and paper products.
