A Taxonomy for Materials Education

Download PDF Presentation:


A host of research results in life sciences and particle physics alike has resulted in significant changes of the taxonomy to describe the relationship between species both in biological systems and the elementary particle "zoo". This, in turn, triggered new research and greatly enhanced teaching of the respective fields. The talk sets out to discuss alternatives to the current taxonomy of materials and the positive effects they can have on teaching materials science.
