This article, titled, "Silk Structure Analysis Explains Paradox of Super-Strength; Could Lead to Even Stronger Synthetic Materials" discusses an aspect of research into materials science. In our quest to find new materials, it is interesting to find that nature often far exceeds our intellectual abilities.
For this project you are to read the article and write a paragraph about it. Paragraphs should be at least three well constructed sentences.
Next you should find another article about one of the following:
1. Other discoveries of materials in nature that we have found useful.
2. Ways we have imitated nature to develop materials.
3. Totally new materials we have made and their uses.
4. Polymers and/or polymer manufacture. (Silk is an organic polymer)
Finally link to that article and write a well constructed 3 sentence paragraph about your article.
Make sure you put your ID and class section on your work. This project is due by midnight Sunday, 4/3. Remember that you need to do either this or the next project. If you do both projects one will count for extra credit.
Spelling counts. Please do your project in a word processor and then cut and paste it into the comment box. Sloppy work really doesn't save you time, and it there are glaring spelling errors you will lose credit.
If you have problems, email me at aphsbio at gmail.com. Please tell me exactly what your problem was including any error messages.
