Exploring Fabrication - Electroplating
In this activity, learners coat a nickel coin with nanometer-thin layers of copper using the electroplating process.
Oil Spill Clean Up Simulation
In this activity, learners use natural sand and hydrophobic sand to learn about oil spills and cleanup.
Exploring Products - Kinetic Sand
In this activity, learners investigate and compare the properties of Kinetic Sand and regular sand.
What’s Nano About Toilets?
In this 30-second video, viewers quickly learn how nanocoatings inspired by nature can keep things clean.
Nano Museum Labels (Graphic Signs)
These museum graphic labels highlight everyday connections to nanoscale science including: chocolate, food packaging, water, a window, paint, a toilet, a soap bubble, fashion, a sock, a pencil, a butterfly, a gecko, a laptop, an elevator, and a local city.
In this O Wow Moments video, Mr. O takes a closer look at nanocoatings and how they change the properties of materials.
Oleophobic Surfaces - Anti-Graffiti Demo
In this activity, learners explore several surfaces that display oleophobic properties due to material science research at the nano scale.
