Description: 

Creating Nanomaterials is an interactive, multimedia component of the Intro to Nanotechnology exhibit package that demonstrates how scientists are using the ability of molecules to self-assemble to create consumer goods with surprising properties. Visitors place and observe “molecules” on an air hockey table. When the air hockey table is activated, the “molecules” hover and assemble into patterns all by themselves—just like molecules in nanomaterials.

About Exhibits

An Exhibit is a visitor experience that may take many formats such as a display of objects or interactive components; it may include graphic panels or multimedia components; it is usually an un-staffed visitor experience. A group of themed exhibits makes up an Exhibition.

The exhibits created by the NISE Network were developed through a process of prototyping, audience evaluation research, educator peer reviews, and in-depth partnerships with scientists.

For information about NISE Network exhibits, please visit the About Exhibits page or contact exhibits@nisenet.org.
