This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2014, which focuses on the applications and scientific background behind the following NanoDays 2014 kit activities: • Exploring Properties - Electric Squeeze • Exploring Properties - Capillary Action Presented by: Lizzie Hager-Barnard of the Lawrence Hall of Science For more information, and for a link to the recording, please see the Resources section of this page.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
- Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
- Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
