Materials World Modules

An Inquiry & Design-Based Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Education Program

Mini Nanoscale Drug Delivery

■ Making Biodegradable Alginate Beads
■ Determining the Rate of "Drug" Release

Design Project
■ Designing a Time-Release Nanomedicine

Through the following key select activities, students learn how nanotechnology is revolutionizing the approach to drug delivery and medical diagnostics. They are engaged in a simulated, as well as actual synthesis of alginate nanoparticles. Each activity prepares students for the Design Project, in which they are challenged to design a prototype nanomedicine with an optimum time-release profile.

MWM will give students an opportunity to understand the world around them in a way they have never experienced before. The modules promote an awareness of the roles science and technology play in society and guide students to take increased control of their work.
