"Exploring Products - Nano Sand" is a hands-on activity exploring how water behaves differently when it comes in contact with nano sand and regular sand. Visitors learn about the hydrophobic properties of nano sand.
"Exploring Products - Kinetic Sand" is a hands-on activity in which visitors investigate and compare the properties of Kinetic Sand and regular sand. They learn that nanotechnology takes advantage of special properties at the nanoscale to create new materials.
These 'Do It Yourself' Nano activities and experiments allow families to experience and learn about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology at home or on the go! They are are designed to be done in the comfort of your own home. Each activity includes lists of widely available, inexpensive materials, step-by-step instructions, and detailed explanations. Go ahead, give 'em a try!
