Exploring Fabrication - Gummy Capsules (NanoDays 12, 13)

"Exploring Fabrication - Gummy Capsules" lets visitors make self-assembled polymer spheres. They learn that self-assembly is a process by which molecules and cells form themselves into functional structures, and that self-assembly is used to make nanocapsules that can deliver medication.

"Explore Science - Zoom info Nano Gummy Shapes" (2016) version designed for groups and community outreach.

Sweet Self-Assembly

The "Sweet Self-Assembly" program focuses on the creation of macrocapsules using self-assembly techniques. Participants make edible macrocapsules using techniques similar to those being used in laboratories to make nanocapsules or “smart drugs”.
