Fantastic Plastic

The Horners have supported the teaching of science and plastics design technology for many years and the “Fantastic Plastic” project was a natural follow up to the Polymer Study Tours.

It is aimed at allowing students a better insight into the plastics industry, extolling a positive alternative career.

Prof Averil Macdonald has given a series of lectures on Plastics which have enthused students over the years.

Two of her lectures can be seen below and give some idea of the passion involved in a fast developing industry where the UK is at the forefront of technology.
