Context
The workplace context can be chosen from professional situations where it is particularly important to prevent conditions that would cause corrosion of material like iron, for example the car industry.

Role
Students adopt the role of advisors who find out about best conditions for storing and using iron parts to prevent corrosion.

Activity
Students conduct hands-on experiments to investigate the phenomenon of corrosion of iron. They plan the investigation and carry out the controlled experiments for example on the influence of temperature, humidity etc.

Product
Students present an advice (for example a flyer) about the conditions in a workplace to avoid corrosion of materials.
Abstract
The aim of this activity is to let students investigate about rust through experiments and theoretical studies. The extent of the investigation and the level of expectation can be adjusted to the student age group and ability. Students are to design and carry out experiments to investigate the phenomenon of rust.
