In this activity, learners explore how molecules self-assemble and how molecules must fit together, like a lock and key, in order to identify each other and initiate a new function as a combined unit. Learners use play-dough and keys to design their own molecular models that demonstrate how shapes of molecules are important to self-assembly. <br> <br> Note: The write-up for this activity starts on the bottom of page 12. <br> Less

This activity introduces learners to the structure and properties of carbon nanotubes. Visitors learn how the carbon atoms are arranged in a carbon nanotube, and that nanotubes are extremely strong and have interesting electrical properties. During the program, learners help build a tabletop model of a carbon nanotube---out of balloons! This activity guide includes instructions for building a smaller tabletop model as well as a giant hanging model. Less

Working in groups, learners model the continuous destruction and creation of ozone (O3) molecules, which occur in the ozone layer. Some learners act as ultraviolet (UV) light and break apart gumdrop and toothpick models of ozone molecules into oxygen molecules and atoms. Meanwhile, other learners assemble ozone molecules from the oxygen molecules and atoms. In a second round, learners model the situation when pollutants such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs) are present. In subsequent rounds, the amount of CFCs changes according to historical data, and learners can see what happens to the proportion of ozone and oxygen in the ozone layer over time. Resource contains vocabulary definitions and suggestions for assessment, extensions, and scaling for different levels of learners. Less

In this activity/demo, learners investigate biobarcodes, a nanomedical technology that allows for massively parallel testing that can assist with disease diagnosis. Learners define antibodies and learn how each antibody binds to a unique protein. Learners also discover how biobarcoding uses nanoparticles, antibodies, DNA and magnetism to detect diseases earlier than we could detect before. Learners assemble a jigsaw puzzle that models how biobarcodes work. Less

In this activity/demo, learners examine a synthetic gecko tape with micron sized hairs that mimics the behavior of the gecko foot. The process is called "nanomolding." Also described in this guide is an easy setup for testing how much weight the gecko tape can hold using LEGOS. Note: it takes 45 minutes to make the gecko tape, which should be prepared 24 hours in advance. Less

In this activity on page 15 of the PDF, learners measure the amount of bubbles that they make using a detergent. Learners investigate whether adding Epsom salt to the solution affects its "sudsiness"--an important attribute of soap, since sudsy bubbles help soap clean greasy dirt. Use this activity to explore how chemicals can change a material's properties and how substances dissolve. Less

This online interactive has three activities in the NanoLab (press the upper right button): Build, Zoom, and Transform. In Build, learners build increasingly complex molecules out of carbon, oxygen, and hydrogen, and is useful for connecting subscripts and the number of atoms, and for introducing 3D molecular structures which are automatically built. Zoom is a "powers of 10" zoom-in ranging from 10,000 kilometers to 1 nanometer. Transform is a simulation of water changing phase from solid to liquid to gas. Through exploration of the site learners form a better understanding of the composition of matter. Less

In this activity, learners explore the human influences on the carbon cycle and examine how fossil fuels release carbon. Learners role play as miners, power plant operators, car drivers, and home owners in a city. Learners will act out how each member of society contributes to the carbon cycle and then create a classroom mural depicting the path of carbon. Learners can reflect on this process as well as brainstorm ways to lower their carbon footprints. This activity is the third in a series of three activities that introduce learners to the carbon cycle (see related sources), although it is not mandatory that all three activities are completed as a set.

In this activity on page 7 of the PDF, learners make their own water treatment systems for cleaning water. Learners construct two filters to test: one with sand and one with sand and charcoal. Learners compare how well the sand and sand + charcoal filters clean water that is "dirtied" with food coloring, dirt, and grass. This activity also features a list of ten ways you can conserve water. Safety notes: Adult supervision is needed for this activity. Do not drink any of the water samples in this activity. Make sure to follow the safety tips listed on page 3 of the PDF, as well as those listed in the procedure for the activity. Less
