School Name :Al-Shamal Independent Secondary school for Girls
Module Polymers: Through this module, students examine the different properties of the variety of polymers. Then they design and test a humidity sensor made of a polymer film. Finally, they are asked to design their own products.
Clay and heating :Hot drinks temperatures decreases quickly, especially in winter. So the idea of our project was painting hot drinks cups with clay polymers to keep its temperature as long as possible

Polymer is a molecular compound
distinguished by a high molar mass,
ranging into thousands & millions of
grams, & made up of repeating units
Activity 1: Changing polymer pellets
1 - Writing the Data
2- Sort tools
3- Prepare two 0.5 g of
4- add 10 ml of water . 6- weight the samples after
10 min .
Sample “A” absorb the water
Sample “B” release the
* The polymers have Characteristic absorption due to polar.
* The polymers have Characteristic edit the water because of
the characteristic propagation .
Activity 2: Hunting for polymer products
Activity 3: Comparing the viscosity of liquids
* The viscosity :
The viscosity of a fluid is a measure of its resistance
to gradual deformation by shear stress or tensile
The relationship is Proportional
between Molecular Weight and
Activity 4: Testing the strength of different
1 -Writing the Data
3- Solution of poly(vinyl acetate
Activity 4:Testing the strength of
different polymers Films . (Part 2)
2- Skimming slot
3-Individual slot 4-In the end
# Cobalt chloride turns to the color blue in
the middle Dry
# Cobalt chloride turns to the color pink in
the middle wet
Activity 4:Testing the strength of different
polymers Films .
Assigning Prototypes for Design
Project 1 :
2-Make a mark on a clean pipette 7 cm
from its tip .
3- use the pipette to draw one of the
solutions up to the mark .
4- add 5 times polymer .
5-Add 3 times Indicator .
6-Add 2 times solvent ratio .
7-Mixing the solution
8-Exposed to moisture
9-Exposure to drought
The projects' problem
Hot drinks temperatures decreases quickly,
especially in winter. So the idea of our
project was painting hot drinks cups with clay
polymers to keep its temperature as long as
The Idea of the project:
Using naturally made clay
polymer after making
It from: starch, soda, oil and
Polymer clay safety is the
subject of concern
specifically the long-term
effects of exposure to
certain phthalate plasticizers
We found out that clay polymer
keeps the temperature of hot
drinks cup for the longest time
1- using the accurate quantity of materials
in making clay polymer leads to good
results .we tried preparing cay polymer with
in accurate quantities ,but the experiment
2- Naturally made clay polymer is very useful for
children. It can be used for making shapes and
toys for children
3- clay polymer must be perfectly ( solute
din order to use it properly and well
AL Bairaq is the learning and scientists eye
on the world . We have had agreat benfit
from our experience with Al Bairaq .
Billion thanks fr all the Beira's team.
