Is Measuring an Art or a Science (High School curriculum lesson)

Linked product
Description
Nanotechnology occurs on the scale of 1-100 nanometers (in one direction). There have been numerous predictions about the growth in nanotechnology production and its impact on manufacturing in the near future. Manufacturing and commercial exchange of nano products will create a need for high-quality measurement technology. This lesson introduces students to the concept of measurement and how important and difficult such measurement is at the nanoscale.

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
