Timely Resource for AP Teachers
Now that the AP tests are over, we understand that you may have time for innovation. This may give you the opportunity to sample one of our nanotechnology lessons. We've simplified it for you by offering comprehensive lesson plans (many of which have been improved by teachers' feedback) and by providing materials with a typical one to two-day turnaround.
The lessons, each of which illustrates a nanotechnology concept, vary in sophistication, so that you can find one that fits your class profile. We are available to discuss them with you and provide ongoing support since we realize that nanotechnology may be new for many of you.
The available lessons are:
• Properties of Colloidal Metals on Nano Scale
• The Molecular Scale: How do you measure what you can't see?
• Effect of Size on Reactions Hydrogels - Production and Applications
• The Effect of Particle Size on Filtering Efficiency of Water
• Hydrogels - Production and Applications
You also can access analytical instruments at our partner universities in your classroom through the Internet.
The lessons can be found on our website www.nanotecknowledgy.org at:
The nanotecKnowledgy team looks forward to working with you to inspire your students with this exciting, 21st century technology that will have a profound impact on their lives.
