"Macro AFM" is a series of hands-on activities to build and use a tabletop AFM simulator to investigate the surface features of various samples using contact, tapping and magnetic modes.
"DNA Fingerprinting Activity" is a complete lesson with experiments and PowerPoint presentations that uses beads to explore self-assembly and DNA fingerprinting. Several experimental approaches to working with materials that are both too small to be seen and too numerous to be counted are covered. (Restriction Fragment Length Polymerization, Polymerase Chain Reaction, Short Tandem Repeat DNA Analysis, and gel electrophoresis.) This is a product from the National Center for Learning and Teaching in Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NCLT) NanoEd Resource Portal.
