Explore microencapsulation using popcorn and Expancel as an introduction including writing names using Expancel and paint. We plan to decorate plastic cups with photochromic and thermopigments, design scratch and sniff cards and make braclets with smart cord and UV active beads. We intend to mount a display of materials that use microencapsulation eg. toys, stickers.
