NC State’s Department of Forest Biomaterials sponsors paper science outreach activities that educate students of all ages and support communities throughout the state:
- School and class visits from faculty members centered around paper making and recycling that educate students about the science and environmental issues of using natural materials like wood to build products for society. These presentations are geared toward upper-level high school or introductory college science classes. Please email the department for more information.
- K-12 Lab Activities and Learning Materials are available as online lab manuals. These Powerpoint presentations and lab manuals provide instruction in a variety of fun and educational experiments such as designing a container to protect an egg, how to recycle paper, how to convert grass into paper, how to measure the strength of paper, etc. The labs utilize common household materials as equipment and are convenient.
