Lessons from the Mini Kit

Here you will find all of the lessons included in our Mini Materials Kit to help introduce students to the concepts of materials science.

The Mini Materials Kit features 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 were developed by Materials Science and Engineering professors at the Missouri University of Science and Technology.

Each kit includes all materials needed for seven demonstrations, illustrated lesson cards with background information, detailed instructions, and safety precautions, and links to additional educational resources to continue learning.
