The Impact of Materials on Society subcommittee partnered with faculty from engineering, liberal arts and sciences and education at the University of Florida to develop an introductory level course suitable for undergraduate and community college students. This project changes the conversation about the separation of the humanities and science fields through the creation of a collaborative, interdisciplinary, project-based undergraduate course examining the impact of materials on society throughout human civilization and into the future. In particular, this project reveals how different professions and disciplines are connected in the discovery, invention and application of materials innovations.
