Impacts of Materials - Presentation

Impacts of Materials - Presentation
Chemical Sciences Resources

In this presentation, the class looks at the environmental impacts of material choices. Sustainability is the focus as the presentation compares the
production and processing of various materials, and introduces concepts such as stored energy and Australia’s Building Material Assessment System. Students are forced to think about the traditional trade off between inexpensive materials and ways of working, and more sustainable methods, and discuss why designers might make the choices they do.
