9. Properties of Metals
This Association for Science Education (ASE) publication about properties of metals was developed in association with the British Aerospace Dynamics Group. At the time the Dynamics Group employed over 20,000 people at ten major design/production establishments throughout the UK and had its headquarters at Stevenage.
The booklet contained guidance for teachers and notes for students. It included activities suitable for students aged 11 to 16+ with extensions for A-level work.

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.
