On Saturday, November 16, 2019 the Taber Museum held a plastics workshop, with hands-on scientific experiences for children, under the supervision of Tim Weston, professor at Pennsylvania College of Technology. The College sent small thermoformers so each student could thermoform something. The children got to take the items home as souvenirs.
Weston, head of the Department of Plastic Technology, possesses a Bachelor’s degree in Chemistry from Lock Haven University and a Master’s in Polymer Science from Penn State.
Over 50 kids attended the session, one of a series of scientific Children’s Workshops, supported by a grant from the Free and Accepted Masons.
