Mayzo is participating in this year’s virtual event by sharing an instructional video related to Chemical Engineering. In the 14-minute video, Mayzo Corporate Account Manager Nesha Tucker guides two 2nd grade students in a hands-on activity to make glue. The project also teaches kids how to test different types of glue for tensile strength.
The video is currently available on YouTube for teachers, parents, and kids to enjoy and share with others. Access on YouTube: https://youtu.be/Sxh2fOI-zOw, or on the Mayzo website at: https://www.mayzo.com/mayzo-releases-instructional-video-for-introduce-a-girl-to-engineering-day-2021/
