Have you ever wondered about the origin of rubber?
Teachers, do you want a way to include fun, polymers,
and science into one activity?
Well, if your answer to any of these questions is, "Yes!", then this is the site for you!
This module highlights three levels of a science activity involving the creation and
testing of polymer balls. In an effort to introduce the term "polymer" to students of any
age, polymer experiments are used to reinforce basic science concepts
such as observation, comparison, volume, density, and temperature, as well as advanced concepts such
as organic structures and polymerization. The lab activity is set up so
that it may be completed in parts or as a whole, depending on the time, resources, and
level of the students involved.
