We've put together resources to help you promote your NanoDays event and other nano educational activities. A collection of NISE Net press photos can also be found in the Media - Promotional Materials section of the nisenet.org website. For questions regarding usage of the NanoDays logo or other marketing materials, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This cart demonstration introduces the nanomaterial aerogel, a glass nanofoam. Visitors learn how aerogel is made, how well it insulates, and learn about its other unique properties. They see real aerogel and feel how well it insulates.
Northwestern University’s module-based educational materials are hands-on, inquiry and design-based units for middle and high school students. Based on materials science and nanotechnology principles, this interdisciplinary approach engages students, adds relevance to traditional curriculum, and has been shown to improve science knowledge for all students.
A Collection of materials science resources, activities and demonstrations developed in conjunction with NOVA MAKING STUFF PBS series. These outreach materials will enable educators and scientists to engage audiences in formal and informal settings and encourage appreciation and better understanding of our material world in the young and old alike.Invisibility cloaks. Season 1: MAKING STUFF: Stronger, Smaller, Cleaner, Smarter. Season 2: MAKING MORE STUFF: Faster, Wilder, Colder, Safer.
Inside Science TV produced by the American Institute of Physics features videos on nanotechnology including: Nanotech Material Protects Against Most Liquids
In this activity, students learn what composite materials are and why they are used in many industries. Students put these ideas to work as they design and create their own bricks. After the bricks are made, students employ a variety of mechanical tests to evaluate their bricks.
Spiderman isn't the only person who can walk on walls and make webs stronger than steel. Scientists are making this possible in the lab. In this Science Xplained, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez describes the science behind making webs and walking on walls. By studying spiders, engineers can create materials that are bulletproof and can build robots that can climb the side of a building.
Associate Professor of Mechanical Engineering & Materials Science at Yale, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez, discusses how a layer of carbon that is one atom thick, called graphene, will revolutionize our lives.
In this segment of Material Marvels, Dr. Ainissa Ramirez demonstrates how materials behave strangely when they are nanosize—about 1/100,000 the thickness of your hair.
