About This Activity

The goal of this research week is to provide the high school students with the opportunities to (1) characterize and identify plastic materials using cutting-edge thermal analysis instruments, (2) promote their understanding on the thermal properties of polymers, such as glass transition and melting temperatures, which will be the main consideration to dictate the usage of polymers in modern life and (3) ultimately enhance their awareness of plastic recycling issues.
