l Science and Technology: Ceramics/Glass, and Polymers
Career and Technical Education (CTE) Course
Grade: 11-12 Prerequisite: Biology I
Length of Course: Semester
Description: This course involves the study of solid matter. Five major units of study form the basis of the MST course: solids, metals, ceramics/glass, polymers (plastic), and composites. We will study the properties, design, and manufacturing of each major solid category. A heavy hands-on, lab based approach is used in this class. Learning will involve working in small groups, writing as a means of learning, participating in demonstrations and activities, using community experts in materials, showing videos, and using a large variety of written resources including current event articles.
