This hands-on chemistry kit teaches students about biomaterials and how engineers develop and test them. The students will then be able to produce their own simulated contact lens by finding the correct proportions of materials to use to achieve the appropriate optical properties, tensile strength, and hydrophobicity. This kit contains enough material for 15 groups of students, and comes complete with teacher's manual, student study guide copymasters, and safety data sheets.
