In this hands-on activity, students will learn about and explore a material that they come into contact with everyday: polymers. They will create their own, non-toxic polymers and use them, along with other household plastics, to test for material properties. Students will learn how plastics are classified for recycling and look at the ways that scientists are trying to create more sustainable polymers.
