Teaching the Dynamics and Significance of Non-Newtonian Materials

1,649

Published on

In the Spring of 2007 I took a course called "Paul Revere: Tough as Nails" (Materials Science course plus History of Technology course), and the final project my team and I chose was to design lesson plans for teaching non-Newtonian fluid dynamics and significance to elementary, high school, and college students. This presentation outlines the project goals and learning content.

Air bags\\Egg whites, another non-Newtonian fluid, change from a watery gel to a rubbery solid when heated. Spider silk, it turns out, undergoes similar irreversible physical changes.
