Storyboard Text

  • So who wants to present first?
  • I will.
  • So at my co-op placement I got to learn a lot about aerogels. Aerogels are solids that have an extremely low density, and are produced by replacing the liquid component of gels with a gas.
  • Aerogels are composed of silica nanoparticles that are 2-5 nanometres in diameter and there are many current applications related to aerogels.
  • Like what?
  • Well.... aerogels can be used to insulate in wall framing and hard-to-insulate areas.  Also, aerogels were used to insulate the Mars rovers' electrical equipment. Aerogels are also able to capture space dust from a speeding comet.
  • Woahhhhhh, that's so cool!!!!
  • I know and that's not all. Researchers are hoping to eventually use aerogels as membranes for electrochemical cells and to make structural components of aircraft.
  • A few minutes later...
  • So yea, that's what I learned from my co-op experience.
