Powers of Ten with the Blue Morpho Butterfly
09 Jan 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Nancy Healy, Marilyn Garza
This activity is designed to help students understand the concept of scale and magnification when examining a Blue Morpho butterfly wing. The activity requires the use of a scanning electron microscope (SEM) but images are provided if there is no access to an SEM.
Seeing Nano: Using Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to View Nano-size Objects
02 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Samantha Andrews
Nano-size objects are smaller than the wavelength of light and because of this they cannot be viewed with a light microscope. Special tools are needed to see nanoscale objects, one of which is the scanning electron microscope. This activity will have students explore the types of images...
How Dry am I? Exploring Biomimicry and Nanotechnology
01 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Elizabeth Davenport, Nancy Healy
Through a series of activities, students will explore superhydrophobic properties of materials. This inquiry based lesson leads them through activities that has them compare and contrast physical properties of superhydrophobic coated materials with uncoated materials. In the process they will...
