I am doing the project " How Strong Is A Toothpick "
and my science teacher told me that has nothing to do with
science it is just measuring. So I am asking you what is
scientific about this science project.
A. How do you measure
something by itself is a science. Studying the properties of
different materials is known as material science.
Science combines metallurgy, physics, chemistry, and engineering
to solve real-world problems with real-world materials.
material science we test the strength of material and come up
with information that is used in designing every building, every
car and every other manufactured piece or equipment.
knowledge that tells us what material should be used for each
application is coming from material science and projects such as
“How strong is a tooth pick”, not from experience. For
example if you want to build a parachute and use it to jump from
an airplane, you can’t simply test different materials for
your parachute to see which one works? Because if you try the
one that does not work, that will be your last try. So you use
material science to test and measure the strength of different
materials and finally come up with a selection and a design.
