2. What is chemistry? What are polymers?
3. Discussion of natural polymers and synthetic polymers (polymers we use everyday).
4. Live science experiment exploring hydrophobic and hydrophilic polymers.
The participant will:
-gain a basic understanding of what a polymer is
-explore various examples of synthetic polymers and natural polymers
-utilize inquiry methods to examine the differences between hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers
5-PS1-1 Develop a model to describe that matter is made of particles too small to be seen.
MS-PS1-1 Develop models to describe the atomic composition of simple molecules and extended structures.
MS-PS1-3 Gather and make sense of information to describe the synthetic materials come from natural resources and impact society.
