What's This Stuff?

In this interactive activity adapted from NOVA, learn about properties of materials such as tensile and compressive strength, toughness, hardness, ductility, malleability, flexibility, electrical and thermal conductivity, and resistance to molds, water, heat, and corrosion. Play a game to identify ten mystery materials using videos and clue cards.

Note for Teachers: Begin by reviewing the "What's This Stuff?" Teacher's Guide for information about facilitating the activity, then print out and prepare the "What's This Stuff?" Student Activity Guide.
