Deposition Overview for Microsystems - Participant Guide
This learning module is an overview of the various deposition processes used in the manufacture of micro-sized devices or MEMS. Processes covered include thermal oxidation, chemical vapor deposition (CVD) and physical vapor deposition (PVD).
Learning about Surface Area and Volume Using "Spaghetti and Meatballs for All!"
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Joyce Allen
The purpose of this lesson is to help students extend their knowledge of area, perimeter, and volume to include surface area. The understanding of these concepts begin in the elementary grades and helps students understand events such as why a hot potato cools down quicker when it is spread out in smaller pieces and why a cell is triggered to divide. This understanding is even more important when students begin to understand the micro and nano scales in middle and high school.
Small Scale Stenciling: Mask Lab
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Marilyn Garza
This lab is analogous with some nanofabrication processes. This lab will help students understand some of the challenges encountered while making semiconductor chips and waveguides, both of which are found in electronic circuits.
The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study
05 Apr 2016 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Sharon Haldeman Mierhofer, NNCI Nano
This lab is designed to help students understand the following: the interdisciplinary fields of science, a practical application of chemistry in the real world, and the need to carefully conduct experiments and evaluate data in a collaborative environment. In this experiment, students will compare the toxicity of different concentrations of nanoparticle suspensions on brine shrimp, along with controls, to perform toxicity assays and data analysis.
