With the Gluep Production - Polymers Guided-Inquiry Laboratory Kit, students design and conduct their own mini-research project as they try to win the contract to manufacture Gluep. Students learn about polymers while having fun!
The Gluep Production Lab is a real-life, open-ended, discovery activity with an element of corporate competition. Student research teams are challenged to use the scientific method to improve a polymer recipe and make a bouncier Gluep ball-all while staying on a fixed budget. Students design and conduct their own mini-research project as they try to win the contract to manufacture Gluep. A fantastic opportunity for students to learn about the scientific method and polymers while having fun at the same time! Includes Teacher Notes, reproducible student handouts, and all the necessary equipment and chemicals.
Complete for 30 students working in pairs.
