The Materials Science Classroom Kit uses fun, hands-on lessons and labs to introduce middle and high school students to the basic classes of materials -- ceramics, composites, metals, and polymers. The kit lessons comply with Next Generation Science Standards and is highly regarded as the best of its kind.
In addition, the popular book, The Magic of Ceramics, accompanies the kit and introduces the non-technical reader to the many exciting applications of ceramics while teaching key scientific concepts.
Included in each kit:
- most materials needed for nine demonstrations and lab activities for multiple users
- the teacher's manual, an illustrated guide that includes background information, learning objectives, keywords, materials lists, safety precautions, detailed instructions, demo delivery hints, teacher discussion questions and student question handouts
- a thumb drive that contains an introductory PowerPoint presentation, an electronic version of the teacher's manual, and instructional videos for each demonstration and lab activity
