Be active, science is fun: room for improvement - activity pack for 8 to 10 year olds

Produced by The Centre for Industry Education Collaboration (CIEC), this booklet contains information and activities of interest to teachers of design and technology. It looks at working practices in industry and schools relating to thermoplastics and provides an introduction to basic techniques for schools and the more common processes found in industry.

The resource is split into two parts. Section one considers safety procedures to be observed in respect of plastic materials and goes on to outline some basic practical processes. The second section describes some of the more common industrial processes in use.
