Welcome!

Welcome to the Akron Global Polymer Academy's outreach to P-16 education. Our goal is to provide a variety of resources to educate students of all ages about polymer science and polymer engineering.

For teachers, we offer a variety of inquiry-based lesson plans that can be utilized as innovative,engaging, and powerful vehicles to ignite students' interest in science.

In an effort to meet the needs of professional development providers, we offer inquiry-based modules for teacher education. These education resources are aligned to national standards for professional development, content standards, and best teaching practices.
