"Exploring Fabrication - Electroplating" is a hands on activity in which visitors coat a nickel coin with copper using the electroplating process. They learn that electroplating can deposit nanometer-thin layers of materials.
"Exploring Products - Kinetic Sand" is a hands-on activity in which visitors investigate and compare the properties of Kinetic Sand and regular sand. They learn that nanotechnology takes advantage of special properties at the nanoscale to create new materials.
Inside Science TV produced by the American Institute of Physics features videos on nanotechnology including: Nanotech Material Protects Against Most Liquids
In this episode of O Wow Moments with Mr. O from the Children's Museum of Houston, we take a look at Nanocoatings!
