So…the factory was…eventful. Approximately an hour? was spent listening to a lecture about concrete. Concrete. We even went into details of what percentages of rocks ‘aggregates’ are used to create a certain consistency of concrete. Again. Concrete. An hour long, intense, presentation on concrete and how it’s mixed with other rocks and chemicals.
^ Somehow we were released from the lecture to actually see the creation of concrete in the practical world. It was interesting to see how very different concrete could be, in terms of consistency and colour.
^We ended with looking at how the strengths of concrete was tested, and looking at special types of porous concrete and sinking some objects that we brought with us into concrete. Coolest part of the entire experience? Glow in the dark rocks.
