Meet Macro and Nano. Nano is WAY smaller than Macro and has some very surprising properties! These short (~30 second) clips introduce visitors to simple fundamentals about the nanoscale.
"Exploring Products - Nano Fabric" is a hands-on activity exploring how the application of nano-sized whiskers can protect clothing from stains. Visitors investigate the hydrophobic properties of pants made from nano fabric and ordinary fabric.
This activity developed by NNIN explores how nanotechnology can be used to change the properties of a copper surface so that it either attracts or repels water. It is appropriate for middle school and high school students.
