Animations (1-6 of 6)

  1. 3D Molecular Models

    21 Jun 2007 | | Contributor(s):: Nicholas Vargo

    This animation was created as part of the Children's Museum Nanotechnology Exhibit to give the viewer an idea of what objects look like at the nano-level. The molecules range from something as small as caffeine to major proteins and viruses.Nicholas Vargo created this kiosk presentation as an...

  2. What is a Nanometer?

    02 Apr 2005 |

    Join Laura and Martin on a wild ride through the milliworld and the microworld to reach the nanoworld. Along the way, they discover how small a nanometer truly is.

  3. Nano/Bio Connection

    02 Apr 2005 |

    Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular assembly techniques.

  4. Scanning Probe Microscopes

    15 Mar 2005 |

    Laura explains how scanning probe microscopes can be used to create images of small devices, molecules, and even atoms! A large-scale version of the scanning probe microscope is built out of Legos to show the basic principles.

  5. Feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing

    14 Mar 2005 |

    Martin and Laura have an interesting debate about the feasibility of Molecular Manufacturing. Can molecular assemblers be developed to create new materials, new devices, and even macroscopic objects? Find out... If Martin ever wakes up!

  6. Nanomanufacturing: Top-Down and Bottom-Up

    14 Mar 2005 |

    Martin presents an overview of nanomanufacturing techniques, explaining the difference between top-down and bottom-up approaches.
