A Library of Hands-On Nanoscience Activities Appropriate for Grade 10 through 14 StudentsNano-Link, the Regional Center for Nanotechnology Education has created a library of over 20 activitiesdeveloped to teach nanotechnology concepts of upper level students. The activities not only provide aninexpensive, tactile approach to understanding nanoscience concepts but also include aspects ofpractical applications, correlation to traditional science and engineering disciplines and avenues forcritical thinking and problem based learning. Each topical activity has several versions that allowtailoring of the activity and content to the education level of the students. Many of these modules havebeen used for several years in high school and college classes with positive results and improvement instudent understanding and interest in science.This poster will present the process, library of activity concepts and topics and specific examples ofresults from the over 4000 students who have used these activities.Nano-Link is funded by the National Science Foundation under DUE – 1204918.
