Some of the biggest scientific breakthroughs in recent years involve things that are actually very, very tiny. The science of nanotechnology deals with the smallest structures, in the range of one to 100 nanometers in size. That’s as small as just a few atoms in a row. With this kit, the intangible, nanoscopic world becomes accessible with hands-on experiments using both scaled-up models and real nanomaterials. Start out by conducting experiments concerning size, scale, and orders of magnitude in the International system of Units, to get a feel for just how small a nanometer really is. Experiment with a special material that mimics the nanostructures on a gecko’s footpads that allow it climb straight up a vertical plane with ease. Includes 41 experiments and a 72-page manual.
