This month’s S.T.E.M. Activity Kit took us on a journey through the wild world of polymers! With this kit, junior scholars took a hands-on approach to learn about polymers in the world around them. This kit allowed junior scholars to make a polymer bracelet and even make some tasty polymers (such as jell-o)!

Some of the topics discussed were:

Definition of a polymer

Characterization of Polymers

Types of Polymers

Physical Properties

Chemical Properties

Naturally Occurring Polymers
