Materials World Modules

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

Mini Nanotechnology

Changing the Properties of Materials by
Amplifying the Nanoscale to the Macroscale

Design Project
Designing a Nanoscale Imaging Apparatus

Through the following key select activities, students discover that physical and chemical properties of materials can depend on their size, investigate how nanoparticles can be made, and determine how to amplify small features at the nano scale to the macroscopic scale. They are then challenged to design a working model of a nanoscale imaging apparatus or model a nanoscience phenomenon.

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.
