Research and Development in Modern Materials

This resource relates to research and development processes associated with Modern Materials, and includes inquiry activities focused on investigation skills and linked to contemporary research practices.
It also features profiles of young researchers working in materials research that cuts across science and engineering, science ideas and their application.

These activities relate to years 7 – 10 and each of the 5 activities lists the relevant outcomes.

This resource can be found here.

This module was designed as part of the ReMSTEP (Reconceptualising Mathematics and Science Teacher Education Project), in partnership with the ASELL for Schools – Victorian Node project and consists of a range of school activities based on the research and development work of Deakin University’s Institute of Frontier Materials (IFM).
