Let's make Ooey, Gooey Polymers - an EYH Workshop Overview

This Expanding Your Horizons Workshop demonstrated the properties of polymers through a hands-on demonstration of cross-linking polyvinyl alcohol with a borax solution thereby changing the properties of the polymer. Another experiment done in the workshop was to demonstrate the change of rubbery properties by cooling a rubber band below the Tg. Mary and Debra will repeat some of the demonstrations for the LunchTalk audience.
