Marvelous Materials

About the Marvelous Materials module

We love materials! They can be elegant or tough, warm or cool, soft or protective. Whether the fashion designer is inspired to create a beautiful gown by an amazing fabric or whether she explores new materials to protect a soccer player, understanding and discovering material properties is important. These activities will introduce you to the complex and exciting world of materials.
