A Century of Plastics

After reading about polymer materials, engineer trainees examine how plastics have been integrated into everyday products. In groups, they compile a list of products made entirely without plastics and then, as a closing activity, try to plan a redesign of a plastic product using fifty percent less of the material. The reading can be done in support of Common Core standards for literacy in science.
