Teaching Plastics


Get Your Hands on Plastic!

Hands on Plastics™ (HOP™) science education investigation kits contain everything you need to design and implement a thorough and engaging investigation into the chemistry and characteristics of plastics. The original HOP science curriculum kit was developed by the National Middle Level Science Teachers Association (NMLSTA), produced by the Plastics Division of the American Chemistry Council (ACC) and distributed to more than 30,000 teachers nationwide.

We have improved on this popular science education resource! We've incorporated new technology, expanded the scope of the classroom activities and created links to the latest National Science Education Standards. Learning activities are inquiry-based. HOP is available for classrooms that use Bunsen burners, and HOP2™ is for those classrooms that do NOT use this science education equipment. HOP Jr™ offers plastics science education activities and resources for elementary school teachers.
