Exploring Size - Measure Yourself (NanoDays 08, 09, 10, 11, 14)

"Exploring Size - Measure Yourself" is a hands-on activity in which visitors mark their height on a height chart and discover how tall they are in nanometers. They learn that although being a billion nanometers tall sounds impressive, it doesn't mean they're super tall: it means a nanometer is super small. Visitors can also measure their hands in nanometers.

Scale and Measurement

"Scale and Measurement" is one of the modules developed by AccessNano. It includes experiments, Power Points and activites to help students learn about scientific notation and the metric system; putting the size of things at the nanoscale into perspective and about the methods used to visualise things at the nanoscale, including microscopy and light diffraction.
