Creating Nanomaterials exhibit

An exhibit that was part of the Nanotechnology: What's the Big Deal? exhibition that demonstrates how scientists are using the ability of molecules to self-assemble to create consumer goods with surprising properties.
Molecules in Motion

Molecules in Motion

In this activity, learners experiment with putting various objects in a small vacuum chamber and explore how the materials behave and change when the air in the chamber is removed.
Adult and children sensing and discussing odors in Chemistry Makes Scents activity

Chemistry Makes Scents

In this activity, learners will use their nose to explore the differences between chemicals with similar structures and use large molecule models to visualize the structural differences.

Exploring Size - Moving Molecules

In this activity, learners use an air cannon toy to spin pinwheels to explore what makes up air.
