Play and learn online with the Strange Matter of Materials Science.
KB...Konnected's insight:

"What's materials science? You could call it the study of stuff! Just about everything you use every day - the shoes you wear, the dishes you eat from, the CDs you listen to, the bike or skateboard you ride - it's all made of different kinds of stuff."

 

This is a really interesting site geared for kids gr. 5-8. "Strange Matter" features online interactives as well as fun things to do in the classroom.
