On Saturday 18th March, over 7000 visitors experienced a wide variety of experiments at the University of Southampton as part of the Southampton Science and Engineering Festival. Academics and Students from the National Center for Advanced Tribology at Southampton support by engineers from nC2 and the UK Tribology network, used hands on demonstrators from the Try Tribology outreach program, to explain about friction and wear. The experiments included measuring figure friction, and replicating Leonardo da Vinci's classic friction experiments.
