        Making Stuff Stronger Activity

        Kids drop a spoon to break some common materials to test their toughness—how much energy they can absorb before breaking—in this activity from NOVA: Making Stuff Stronger. The goal is to learn about the physical properties of some everyday materials and how materials scientists test the properties of materials to determine how safe they are, how best to use them, and how to design better ones.
