Nano Future Tellers

NISE Network product
Description: 

Nano Future Tellers are origami-folded, interactive pocket game to educate visitors ages 7-12 about future nano products! Everyone's favorite fortune telling game brings potential future nano products to life!

Audience: 

Objectives

Big Idea: 
To engage visitors ages 7 to 12 in a conversation about nanoscale science, technology, and engineering. Visitors will be asked to explore the future of nanoscale science and the impact it will have on their lives.
Learning Goals: 
  • As a result of this program, visitors will be able to learn the following: -Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale. -Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren’t possible before. -Nanotechnologies have costs, risks, and benefits that affect our lives in ways we cannot always predict.
NISE Net 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.
  • Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
  • Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
