Water - a global experiment with hydrogels
Collaborate with thousands of students from around the world by taking part in our experiment.
Follow the instructions to discover how much water a hydrogel can hold. Is the rate of absorption always the same? How are hydrogels useful to us in everyday life? By taking part we want you to answer these questions and share your discoveries.
This global experiment will remain open so you can participate anytime.
