Online Brown-Bag: The Science Behind NanoDays 2013 Activities - Part Two: Laddering Activities Around Polymers and Light at the Nanoscale (Recorded)

This is a recording of a NISE Network online brown-bag conversation held in 2013. This brown-bag conversation focused on the science behind NISE activities related to polymers or light at the nanoscale. The following activities were discussed:

• Exploring Fabrication - Gummy Capsules • Exploring Materials - Hydrogel • Exploring Structures - Butterfly • Exploring Materials - Thin Films • Exploring Properties - Invisibility

Presented by: Rashmi Nanjundaswamy and Lizzie Hager-Barnard, Lawrence Hall of Science, Univeristy of California, Berkely

Exploring Nano & Society - Invisibility Cloak

"Exploring Nano & Society - Invisibility Cloak" is a hands-on activity in which visitors learn about refraction and how it can be used to make a glass stir rod "disappear" in a cup of baby oil. They also learn how nano researchers are trying to make invisibility cloaks by manipulating the refraction of light. Conversation around this possible new technology leads visitors to explore how technologies and society influence each other.
