Through the following key select activities, students study the science of compacting ultra small ceramic particles. They evaluate the evolution of density and microstructure of ceramics as they are synthesized at high temperatures. They then use ceramics to make a voltage-protecting device.
MWM will give students an opportunity to understand the world around them in a way they have never experienced before. The modules promote an awareness of the roles science and technology play in society and guide students to take increased control of their work.
