"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.
