In the activity, “Materials Smackdown,” students choose a pair of materials to see which one is stronger.

This site's activities offer students unique ways of looking at and understanding states of matter. In the activity, “Materials Smackdown,” students choose a pair of materials to see which one is stronger. It gives information about each type of material and then allows the student to see which material is stronger/can withstand more pressure. In another activity called “The Transformer,” students choose between three materials: silicon, iron, and carbon, and see what they are able to transform it into by heating, treating, and/or applying pressure.
