Material Science

1st Quarter

I am so excited to be teaching Material Science this year.  This fall we will be investigating basic principles of what material science is all about.  This field of science is RAPIDLY growing and careers in Material Science are in high demand!  

1st Quarter we will be studying general concepts of solids including atomic arrangement of solids, mechanical properties, bonding, and crystal formation. We will be doing many many laboratories to help us with these concepts.  One of my favorite labs this quarter is growing a copper sulfate crystal from a seed crystal. Students will try to see how large they can grow their crystal!
