Silver and Bandages (High School curriculum lesson)

Linked product
Description
This lab is designed to have students develop and implement their own experiment to test the antimicrobial properties of silver nanoparticles. Students will be required to document and communicate the entire process via their scientific notebook. Students will also consider the implications and applications of nanotechnology by evaluating scientific literature.

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
