How It’s Made

How It’s Made is an exploratory course designed to expose students to the materials and methods used to create products.  In this course, students will explore and explain the different types of materials used in everyday products, including physical characteristics, manufacturing methods, and properties for design.  Students will focus upon the process by which the material is developed from raw components to finished product.  Environmental impact of the respective materials will be a secondary focus to provide fundamental information for future exploration.
