About Poly Presents

Bronco Globe

Bronco Globes 2009

The Bronco Globe was designed and created in the labs at Cal Poly, Pomona. One word to describe this product is- unique. Inside each Bronco Globe is a fluid which is a viscoplastic material. This material behaves as a fluid when forces are applied and as a solid when no forces are present. The Chemical And Materials Engineering department is currently working on several research projects involving this material for uses in biology and paints & coatings. In purchasing the Bronco Globe, you hold a piece of current Cal Poly Pomona research.

The Cal Poly Snow Globes were developed and commercialized by the first project cohort in 2009. Within 3 weeks of its introduction to the market, Cal Poly Snow Globes sold out.
