This report, prepared for the Royal Armouries Material Science Learning Zone at HM Tower of London, details the design, creation, and evaluation of a loan box outreach program focusing on the material science of polymers. Hands-on learning activities have been shown to increase the amount of information students retained, thus the loan box will primarily contain this type of activities supplemented by literature and lecture materials. The project intends to spark interest in materials science in students at the Key Stage 3 level as part of an initiative to address a much larger issue; namely, a declining interest in the sciences in the UK.
