        Wearable Science – Episodes | The Ruff Ruffman Show

        In this series of episodes from The Ruff Ruffman Show, learn about wearable science and material properties alongside Ruff Ruffman. Materials have specific properties that can be observed and described, and different properties are suited for different purposes. Ruff Ruffman encounters a variety of problems: trying to figure out what materials to use to create a leash strong enough to hold a rhino, to fix Blossom’s things, to make a costume for the rhino, and to make a raincoat that keeps him dry. With the help of the kids, Ruff discovers how materials science can help solve problems that arise when you're pet-sitting a rhino...

        These videos have been captioned in both English and Spanish. This resource is part of the RTL 2015-2020 Initiative collection.
