I went on a materials science camp and had a great time. The camp was geared toward high school science teachers, and I am in elementary education. I have a great background in many things - but not chemistry and physics and other such subjects.

I had such a great time studying material science that I want to write a curriculum for elementary students. Now I need to figure out what I need to learn.

Does anyone have an idea about the role of chemistry in material science?

I can see it is a complex subject but from this site you might be inspired to see and get other ideas
