How are things made out of polymers? What kinds of properties will our products have?

Click on the links below to see how to use polymers to make:

Different polymers can have VERY different properties. Some are soft and squishy, others are hard and tough. So, by choosing which polymer to use, we can control how something made out of it will act.

What can we do to make polymers stronger?

How do we know when a polymer is strong enough? How can we find out exactly what a polymer is like?
