FEBRUARY 15-19, 2016: METAL

ALLEN RILEY

Metals have special properties that have made them important in technologies from ancient times to the present: they can be melted and molded into any shape like coins and jewelry, they can vibrate to produce sound like the strings of a guitar, they can hold up weight like the frames of furniture and skyscrapers, and they can conduct electricity like in computers. This week, we will explore different types of metal and their many uses.
