Long activities include workshops, labs, and lessons for student and public groups. They are typically presented in a dedicated classroom or lab space. Length of time can vary from 45 minutes for an elementary field trip or classroom program to several hours or days for labs, summer camps, and other program formats.
In this activity, learners make edible macrocapsules using techniques similar to those being used in laboratories to make nanocapsules or "smart drugs".
Nano Around the World card game
In this activity, learners are asked to assume the role of their character to find nanotechnologies that might benefit them and reflect on the potential uses of nanotechnology across the globe.
Nano Ice Cream
In this public presentation, a presenter will demonstrate how liquid nitrogen cools a creamy mixture at such a rapid rate that it precipitates super fine grained (nano) ice cream.
After School Framework - Nanoscale Science
In this four week afterschool framework, learners engage with nano demos and programs and provides learners with a basic understanding and appreciation for nanoscale science concepts.
Dye Sensitized (Raspberry Juice) Solar Cell
In this activity, learners build a dye-sensitized solar cell using nanocrystalline titanium dioxide and raspberry juice.
School Field Trip Framework
In this long activity designed for field trips of students aged 8-11 years, learners use hands-on activities to learn about nanoscale science and engineering.
Exploring the Universe: Ice Orbs
In this activity, learners investigate a sphere of ice and objects hidden inside as a model for icy worlds in our solar system.
Colors at the Nanoscale: Butterflies, Beetles and Opals
In this activity, learners will be exposed to the term ‘Photonic Crystals,' explore some of the well-known photonic crystals in nature and will also be able observe one method that scientists use in trying to replicate this process.
Exploring the Universe: Imagining Life
In this activity, learners imagine extreme environments that may exist beyond Earth and create living things that could thrive there.
Nanotechnology Summer Camp (Ages 8 - 10) - Framework
In this weeklong activity, learners will engage with nanoscale science and engineering through hands-on activities.
