Url: http://www.materialseducation.org/educators/matedu-modules/docs/Compo...
Creator: Stoebe, Thomas G.
Publisher: Edmonds Community College
Description: This learning activity will provide a good example of "the effect on strength and stiffness of a material when it is manufactured as a composite." Popsicle sticks will be used to demonstrate the difference between singular materials and composite materials. Students will be able to see the added benefits of using composite materials.

This activity would be suitable for elementary school through college level students, with each grade level gaining different educational benefits. The lesson should take from 5 to 20 minutes, depending on grade level. This document will serve as a framework for instructors and may be downloaded in PDF format.
