|Introduction for students and teachers |
The earlier version, called Making Steel, was published in the early 1990s as a booklet and proved very popular with schools. Since then, British schools and British Steel have moved on. The impact of Information and Communications Technology is transforming the way students are learning. In keeping with this trend, we are publishing the latest edition, called The chemistry of steelmaking, as an electronic resource, or e_source, making use of the latest internet technology.
|In 1999 British Steel merged with the Dutch steel and aluminium producer Koninklijke Hoogovens to form an exciting new force in metals called Corus. The new group will rise to the challenge of todays global markets, serving the market needs for aluminium, carbon steel and stainless steel. |
One of the aims of Coruss education programme is to enhance the work related curriculum and enrich classroom activity. Like all its educational resources, The Chemistry of Steelmaking has been produced in partnership with schools, colleges and teachers. In this way Corus ensures that our resources are directly relevant to the needs of all UK schools.
We hope you will find this e_source useful in your studies and informative about steel, one of the basic elements of every industrial society. We welcome your comments and suggestions on schoolscience.
