Science Shorts | Composite Materials

Combining strengths is helpful in many instances – like the different positions on a soccer team, mixing several ingredients to bake a cake, and blending materials to manufacture a wind turbine blade!

Today’s Science Short is about composite materials, like the fiberglass used to make wind turbine blades. Composite materials are substances made from combining two or more materials that have different properties on their own – in order to maximize desired properties (like strength or flexibility ) in the resulting material.
