At our October meeting we were visited by Dr Audrey Matthews from Demontfort University who gave a talk called ‘Smarty Pants’ which was about the scientific side of underwear and sportswear. She talked about the reasons we wear underwear and the different fabrics that have been used to make them over the years. Audrey showed us some sportswear made from different materials that can stop perspiration and some that was anti bacterial, explaining the science behind how this works. All in all this was a very interesting, and at times humorous talk.?
