You will be amazed at what a soda can looks like at the atomic level. Learn about materials science and the tools the scientists use to examine the structure of material, in this case, aluminum. A materials scientist explains how small an atom is and talks about the importance of the electron microscope for looking at the internal structure of a material. Look at the structure of a crystal, a group of atoms, and find out why scientists need to understand crystals so they can understand the strength of certain metals. As you move up the scale, you’ll learn about the the properties of aluminum, why recycling it is important, and finally you’ll see the the whole object, made of millions of atoms, on a macroscale.
