The Nanotech Academy Activity F: Materials Matter

This lesson plan from the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) Center provides a field activity which will illustrate some of the specific material properties of polymers, metals and magnets. The activity involves a field trip to Innovation Park, which is located on the campus of Pennsylvania State University. It would be best suited for classes located in the region. The activity should take about an hour and 30 minutes of classroom time, but that will depend on how far the class must travel to reach the campus. This and all other resources from the NACK Center require a fast, easy, free log-in.
