"Exploring Size - Powers of Ten" is a card game exploring the relative sizes of various objects. Visitors compete to organize their hand of cards into lists of objects from largest to smallest.
"Exploring Size - Memory Game" is a card game exploring the different size scales - macro, micro and nano - objects within these different scales and the way these objects are measured. Visitors compete to find matching pairs of cards.
"Exploring Size - StretchAbility" is a hands and feet-on game that explores the different sizes of things in the world. Visitors learn that a nanometer is a billionth of a meter.
“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.
“Ready, Set, Self-Assemble” is a full-body program which introduces visitors to the concept of self-assembly in a fun and energetic way. Through the use of three full-body, interactive games, visitors explore the phenomena of self-assembly and its possible uses in nanotechnology.
This is a card game which can be played with museum visitors. Visitors will learn the relative sizes of various objects. They compete against each other (or you) to organize their hand of cards into lists of objects from largest to smallest.
Museum visitors are contestants in a game show that encourages them to learn more about nanotechnology. The three rounds included here cover an introduction to nanotechnology; provide information on nanoparticle solar cells; and express the concerns people have for nanotechnology. New rounds of information can be plugged in as needed. The show is also designed to work with other hot topics, such as .....(genetically modified food, perhaps.) Other museums have used the title Wheel of Nanoscience.
A repository for teaching materials managed by the National Center for Learning and Teaching (NCLT) focusing on nanoscale science and engineering education (NSEE).
NanoBuzz is a web-based kiosk featuring exhibit-ready access to current nanoscale science, technology and engineering and emerging research in the news. Website includes four online puzzle games: Help assemble the carbon nanotubes, Help filter the water, Try to find the nanoparticle, and Test your nanotech memory.
"Exploring Nano & Society - You Decide!" is a hands-on activity in which visitors sort and prioritize cards with new nanotechnologies according to their own values and the values of others. Visitors explore how technologies and society influence each other and how people’s values shape how nanotechnologies are developed and adopted.
