What do Legos, milk jugs, Rainbow Loom bracelets, sandwich bags, and chewing gum all have in common? They are all made of polymers! Polymers are groups of molecules that are connected to create something tangible (something you can touch.) They may be solid, squishy, sticky, bendable, or anything else you can think of. While many polymers are manmade, some occur naturally, as in the juice of rubber or aloe plants. Join us as we have fun exploring—and making—polymers!
