“Macro, Micro and Nano Stretch-Ability” is a fun, hands AND feet on game which explores objects on several different scales. This activity teaches visitors about the macroscale, microscale and nanoscale, the objects within those scales and the way we measure these objects.
- Distinguish between the macro-, micro- and nanoscales.
- Discover what types of objects are found in each scale.
- Understand the units of measurement which are used for each scale.
- Understand that there are many scales in the world, some which we can’t see with our eyes.
- Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
