STEM Ambassador Activity: Creating Captivating Cornflour
The information sheet, from the Royal Academy of Engineering, covers what materials are required and encourages students to think about how a material alters as it is processed and how it can be used. Students are encouraged to think about enginnering applications for a material and also the marketing of a product. There is a case study about a research scientist's work and information on extending the scope of the activity.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
