What are polymers? How are polymers used and reused in our everyday lives? In this program, students will explore polymers through a set of demonstrations and hands-on activities. They will learn what types of materials are polymers and how these materials impact their everyday lives. Students will make a polymer and explore some tests used in recycling plastics. This project is presented in partnership with the CU Chemistry and Biochemistry Club.
