Materials make up the clothing we wear and the objects we use. Some clothing is made out of special materials that are used by firefighters and police officers to protect them from harm. Other materials have been engineered by researchers who studied the natural world and replicated their strengths, a practice known as biomimicry. Students will learn about various materials used by people and then plan, design, and model an object or outfit that will benefit its user.
