Description
This inquiry based lesson leads students through several activities that has them compare and contrast physical properties of superhydrophobic coated materials with uncoated materials. In the process they will learn what constitutes "superhydropobic" and surface tension.

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
