Q. 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
A. How do you measure something by itself is a science.
Studying the properties of different materials is known as material
Materials Science combines metallurgy, physics,
chemistry, and engineering to solve real-world problems with
In 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.
The 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.

Science" and "strength of
material" or "Material Strength"
