What’s In My Stuff? brings together science and art in a creative and multi sensory way, extending traditional boundaries that rethink how the public engage with science and the material world.

The key elements to our approach involve:


  • We organise and run interactive and participatory field laboratories where different groups can have hands on, practical experience of taking apart a technological device and analysing its innards.
  • We conduct surveys and questionnaires to find out what you know about your gadgets and how many you own and use.


  • We transform materials from discarded mobile phones and use data and knowledge about the chemical elements used in them to make creative contemporary jewellery for exhibitions and to use in public engagement activities.


  • We create exhibitions and displays of deconstructed phones, jewellery and artefacts with supporting information about the key sustainability issues connected to materials used in technological devices.
  • We give lectures and presentations about our project to different organisations and audiences ranging from school children to government ministers.

We hope these different kinds of events create an effective and enriching experience that provides a lasting impression and helps individuals consider how they can contribute to a more sustainable future.
