After learning about products students can create a presentation for a particular product; test their product; or research a career in nanotechnology.

Online Brown-Bag: Nano Show and Tell: Nano in Consumer Products (Recorded)

This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2013. The purpose of this brown-bag conversation is to provide examples of real nano products so you can incorporate them in your current demonstrations and visitor conversations. It may even inspire ideas for a new program or demonstration.

Presented by: Frank Kusiak of the Lawrence Hall of Science
