- Join to access all included materials
Peruse the properties of polymers with your materials engineers, chemistry aces, or emerging ecologists. The inquiries in this resource include puncturing polyethylene plastic bags, dissolving polystyrene cups, creating a polymer ball out of glue and borax, and discovering that different oils solidify at different temperatures. You could use this resource when teaching properties of matter to chemistry or engineering classes, or when examining the problems associated with petroleum products with your environmental science classes.
