Materials World Modules

An Inquiry & Design-Based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education Program

Linking to National Science Education Standards

MWM helps students to understand science and technology in relation to contemporary problems. It uses the team approach, providing students with collaborative opportunities to engineer designs. The modules bring the latest topics to the classrooms, emphasize the historical development of products and technologies through human efforts, and provide students with a broader perspective on scientific topics as they develop their research skills. In the end, students must be able to apply what they have learned to real-world situations.
