NanoDays Collection Book
Digital book of all public engagement materials from NanoDays 2008-2015 designed to engage the public in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology and their impact on society impact on society.
Exploring Fabrication - Electroplating
In this activity, learners coat a nickel coin with nanometer-thin layers of copper using the electroplating process.
Learners may explore more about nanotechnology and learn more about the science behind NanoDays activities and Nano exhibition experiences including Audio Description for the exhibition.
NanoDays Planning Guide
Professional development guide for educators on planning and promoting a NanoDays event.
Nano & Society Posters
Posters featuring the science and society connections for nanotechnology; accompanied by a facilitator guide
Exploring Size - Powers of Ten Game
In this activity, learners compete to organize their hand of cards into lists of objects from largest to smallest.
Exploring Size - Memory Game
In this activity, learners play a card game exploring the different size scales - macro, micro and nano - objects within these different scales and the way these objects are measured.
Exploring Products - Nano Sand
In this activity, learners explore how water behaves differently when it comes in contact with nano sand and regular sand.
Exploring Forces - Static Electricity
In this activity, learners discover that electrostatic forces cause smaller balls to be suspended in a tube while larger ones fall to the bottom.
Exploring Size - StretchAbility
In this activity, learners use a "hands and feet-on" game that explores the different sizes of things in the world.
