Polymer Prodigies (G5)
Drawing inspiration from Volha, Jason, and Anne, and using the overarching phenomena of turning an insulator into a conductor, students explore the properties of materials and how you can change them to solve challenges as they ask themselves, "What do I want my polymer to be able to do?"
This unit is intended to be used in grade 5 as part of our primary NGSS/NYSSLS science curriculum sequencing. It can also be used in grades 3 - 5 as a supplemental curriculum.
Note: This unit currently has our shorter entrepreneur interviews (FireSci Shorts) versus our longer curated lesson and FireSci Chat videos.
