  1. Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Labs

    30 Jan 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network

    Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) is a community of educators that aims to bring advanced technologies into K-12 and college classrooms via remote access. RAIN's mission is to facilitate the study of nanoscale science by lowering barriers for instructors to deliver...

  2. Determination of Percent Oxygen in Air

    05 Dec 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network, Brandon Rodriguez, Isabel Bojanini, Ashley Min, Melanie Hacopian

    The percent oxygen in air was determined using the reaction of steel wool with oxygen gas. Using a remotely accessible instrument provided by the RAIN Network, images and elemental composition of the steel wool and oxidized steel wool was obtained for use in chemical identification of steel wool...

  3. Geology Mineral Lab

    05 Dec 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, NACK Network, Brandon Rodriguez, Joel Monroy, Randy Flores

    A laboratory that involves using Geology/Chemistry multidisciplinary lab techniques to determine the identity of an unknown mineral. The Remotely Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Network is utilized to help confirm identity of mineral using a remotely accessible Scanning Electron...

  4. Plant Growth in Solution of Nanoparticles Lab

    20 Sep 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Jared Ashcroft, William Miller

    A problem based learning lab growing mung beans in a nanoparticle solution and using the Remoteley Accessible Instruments in Nanotechnology (RAIN) Network for imaging and analysis was created for use in K-12 and University classrooms.

  5. Molecular Modeling and Electronic Structure Calculations

    01 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: George C. Schatz, Baudilio Tejerina, Shelby Hatch, Jennifer Roden

    This is a purely computational project that is concerned with using the nanoHUB tool QC-Lab to create and optimize molecules, and to study their spectroscopic and structural properties. The molecules studied are generally small molecules of interest to atmospheric chemistry, however the tool can...

  6. Synthesis and Analysis of Silver/Gold Nanoparticles

    01 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Shelby Hatch, George C. Schatz

    This lab provides instructions for the synthesis of nanoscale silver colloidal particles along with questions to guide student thinking regarding the molecular-scale interactions between acids, bases, salts and sugar with the silver particles.A UV-Vis spectrophotometer (300-800 nm) is used to...
