“We’re all in this together . . . “ That is a familiar phrase we’ve heard many times over the last 9 months or so, but it is true. We have missed our various in-person opportunities to interact with teachers, so we decided to expand the free online resources we have available to educators and those parents who are teaching at home.
We invite you to visit our “Ceramics are Cool” web page for resources you can use in the classroom or in a virtual setting. In addition to a wide variety of online resources and links, we also offer you the free downloadable lessons from the Materials Science Classroom Kit.
You can also get a sneak peak at a new teaching resource we have developed which will be available soon! The Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation is proud to introduce our Mini Materials Demo Kit, a collection of seven simple demonstrations for use practically anywhere by parents, teachers, and students who are utilizing online and at-home teaching resources. The lessons are written for a wide age-range of learners and the whole family can have fun learning about such topics as:
What is Fluorescence? The Science of Silly Putty®
What is Fiber Optics? Magic Color Beads and UV Light
How are Glass Fibers Made? What is a Shape Memory Alloy?
Does heating an aluminum nail make it harder?
The Mini Materials Demo Kit provides interesting activities to be done at home or in the classroom and can be purchased for only $49; quantity discounts are available! Contact Belinda Raines at email@example.com for more information.
