Nano 101 Intro to Nano slide presentations
Introduction to nanoscale science and technology slide presentations for educators.
Nano and Me Videos
In these short videos, learners are introduced to simple fundamentals about the nanoscale; topics include the differences between macro and nano silver, gold, aluminum, latex, gravity, and stain free pants.
Sand, Plants and Pants
In this activity, learners explore how the application of nano-sized particles or substances can change a bigger material’s properties.
Multimedia Zoom Into a Nasturtium Leaf
This downloadable and online interactive allows learners to travel from the familiar scale of nasturtium leaf to DNA deep within the plant's cell.
Exploring Products - Nano Fabrics
In this activity, learners investigate the hydrophobic properties of pants made from nano fabric and ordinary fabric.
