Fifth-graders from Nashville Christian School discover they have created slime with the help of Patsy Green, national outreach educator of the National Plastics Center and Museum of Leominster, Mass. The students visited the Plastics Museum's PlastiVan at SPE's Thermoforming Division conference in Nashville, Tenn. The PlastiVan program is a national education program geared for students in grades three through 12. Students learn about the chemistry, history, processing and environmental issues of plastics. In addition, six Mini Maac thermoforming machines, developed by Maac Corp. of Itasca, Ill., will be used to teach about the thermoforming process.
WE'VE BEEN SLIMED!
