Aluminium is used in every aspect of our lives – from protecting our food to transporting us in cars, trains and planes. These free resources will help students aged 11-14 understand the material properties of aluminium.
Through exploring the life cycle of aluminum, students will understand the importance of recycling aluminium and the contribution it can make to sustainable design.
These resources can also be used to support pupils taking part in the Alu D&T Challenge.
