The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this lesson plan for students learning about polymers. The class will create a material similar to silly putty using cross linking polymers. The module will allow students to observe the changes in physical properties when a polymer is cross linked, as well as the changes in properties at varying temperatures. The procedure should take about 20-25 minutes of class time. Discussion questions, teacher notes and a link to a video clip are included.
