Metals Recycling workshops

Metal properties and recycling (Years 4-6)

Introduce your students to material properties and sustainability principles with this challenging and engaging workshop combining hands-on investigations with group discussion and activities. Students will explore how the properties of metals determine their uses, and are used to separate metals in recycling, and practice their literacy, numeracy, observation and collaboration skills.

Metals and the circular economy (Years 7-10)

Explore physical and chemical properties of common metals and alloys, their uses and value, and the resources saved by recycling metals in a circular economy model instead of the traditional linear production – consumption – disposal approach. This engaging hands-on program would make an excellent introduction to a Design and Technologies unit or a Physical/Chemical Sciences unit. Activities include using buoyancy to calculate density, and a whole-class model of magnetic induction and eddy currents.
