Materials Camp for High School Students
01 Jul 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau
These activities were all developed for the Materials Camp program at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), which began in 2011. The camp is a five-day, non-residential program designed to introduce mostly local 10th-12th grade students to the field of materials engineering and the...
Materials Matching Mixer Activity
29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau
This materials-themed ice breaker activity is great for the first day of a camp program to get students thinking about basic material properties, as well as talking to each other and speaking out loud in front of the group. The name of a common engineering material (steel, rubber, concrete,...
Pineapple Packaging Design Challenge
This activity asks students to work in teams to consider the pros and cons of different materials as a container for cut pineapple (metal can plastic jar, glass jar). It reinforces the differences between different categories of material, weighing conflicting factors to reach a design...
Engineering Communication with Tinker Toys
This resource describes three variations on an engineering communication activity using Tinker Toys. In the main activity, small groups of students are given a bag of Tinker Toys and instructed to build anything they like. They are then asked to write down building instructions for...
