Materials science is a fascinating area of research that is often at the cutting edge of science and engineering. It involves both developing new materials and improving on existing ones, and has important applications both for improving daily life and for advancing other fields of research. You can try your hand at making and testing all kinds of substances from plastic to slime.
Make your own fun, colorful shapes with sand and glue! In this fun science activity, you will use a process similar to "binder jetting," a type of 3D printing. However, you don't even need a 3D printer to do it! Just some sand, glue, a cup, and a spoon. Written instructions are available on the Science Buddies website: https://www.sciencebuddies.org/stem-activities/3D-print-with-sand?from=YouTube

Print fun, colorful objects with royal icing, just like a 3D printer would! In this fun and easy science activity, you use a technique similar to fused deposition modeling, the technique used by most common "consumer" 3D printers. You will print 3D objects yourself with royal icing. No 3D printer or plastic needed!
