The Nanotech Academy Activity L: Surface Properties

The Nanotech Academy Activity L: Surface Properties

This lesson plan from the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) Center highlights the differences between hydrophobic and hydrophilic surfaces and how that can be changed. Clothing made with stain free and regular fabric will be used in the experiment to illustrate the technology and its practical applications. The activity should take about 30 minutes of classroom time. This and all other resources from the NACK Center require a fast, easy, free log-in.
