Nanoscience lab activities for the classroom. The Nano Center, along with similar centers around the country, has developed classroom activities for science classes that introduce students to the tools and concepts of nanotechnology. These are teacher-designed and tested lab activities that can be used in middle- and high school classes in biology, chemistry, physical science, and technology. Each activity includes a complete written procedure, lists of equipment and supplies and where to get them, student guides, and worksheets.
Downloadable nanoscience education activities are available at
1) Nano-Link, the regional center for nanoscience education, and
2) The Education Portal of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN).
