2014 Fall Stanford SPLASH
Polymers are fascinating materials that can be found almost everywhere in our daily lives. These macromolecules have many repeating subunits that form long chains and networks. From the skin on our bones to the plastics we buy at the store, polymers come in all shapes and sizes. In this short course, we’ll learn about polymers through fun hands-on activities that highlight some of their most important properties.
We will teach the students the different applications and basic concepts of polymer science.
