Who are materials scientists and what do they do?
You've probably heard of a chemist, a biologist or a physicist, but have you ever heard of a materials scientist? Probably not. One reason is that materials science covers a huge range of activity and touches on many different fields - including chemistry, biology and physics! Sometimes materials scientists are called ceramic or polymer engineers or metallurgists, and you can find them working in industries, labs, and universities all over the world.
