Material Properties


This module develops the idea that by taking advantage of the properties of materials, we can solve many problems in our lives. Students will develop an appreciation for the man-made materials of everyday objects and learn to recognize that those materials are chosen based on their properties. Through hands-on investigation, students will explore the material properties. The module ends with a design challenge where students can choose the right materials to design a sailboat.
