Graphene. If you haven't heard of it before, you have now. And it may prove to be the next big thing in materials science.
In this first in a series of brown bags about the Nano mini-exhibition, we take a look at different approaches to training staff and volunteers to work with the Nano mini-exhibition.
Students will examine the order of size of objects from the nanoscale to macroscale to visualize exponents and decimals, make size comparisons of objects, and develop an understanding of how small
There are two activities in this lesson, the Fly Prison and the Water Maze.
Nonpolar molecules that repel the water molecules are said to be hydrophobic; molecules forming ionic or a hydrogen bond with the water molecule are said to be hydrophilic.
After an introductory PowerPoint on nanotechnology students are given a chance in groups to explore consumer products through an information sheet provided over available consumer products.
A focus of the National Science Standards is that students are provided opportunities to read and analyze science outside of their textbooks.
This lab is designed to help students understand how nanoparticles may be more effective catalysts by investigating how the surface area-to-volume ratio of a substance is affected as its shape chan
This is a series of four lessons which build upon each other to explore the use of nanotechnology in cosmetics as well as the social and ethical issues associated with nano-based cosmetics.
Ferrofluid is a unique material that has both magnetic and liquid properties. It is a colloidal solution of nano-sized particle of magnetite suspended in a liquid. (Purchased).
The purpose of this lesson is to familiarize students with size, scale, and measurement by exploring size and scale through a variety of activities.
This lab explores the properties of water flow. This inquiry-based lab consists of 2 sections: the Guided Lab Activity and the Going Further (research) portion.
The objective of this lab is to campare the diffraction behavior of light waves between a CD and DVD.
What’s a mini-grant?
This unit provides activities for students to learn about the metric system of measurement.
This a cross-disciplinary chemistry and social and ethical issues lesson that is tied to a new and promising inexpensive form of diagnostics called paper diagnostics.
The purpose of this investigation is twofold: 1) To use the skills of scientific inquiry to uncover the most likely perpetrator of a crime, and 2) To employ a paper diagnostics tool as a forensics
