  6. Memory Metals

    29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education, Matthew Shultz, Deb Newberry, James J Marti

    This module explores the properties of shape memory alloys, commonly called “memory metals”.  These alloys, when made into wires or thin structures, exhibit the shape memory effect: if bent or deformed, the metal will revert to its original shape upon heating. This module...

  7. Balloon Skewer Relay Race

    29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau

    Do you think you could get a bamboo barbecue skewer through a balloon without popping it?  With a little dish soap and some practice, I bet you could!  Skewering a balloon is a fun and inexpensive way to demonstrate the structure-dependent properties of polymers. Polymers are made...

  8. Materials Matching Mixer Activity

    29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau

    This materials-themed ice breaker activity is great for the first day of a camp program to get students thinking about basic material properties, as well as talking to each other and speaking out loud in front of the group.  The name of a common engineering material (steel, rubber, concrete,...

  9. Pineapple Packaging Design Challenge

    29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau

    This activity asks students to work in teams to consider the pros and cons of different materials as a container for cut pineapple (metal can plastic jar, glass jar).  It reinforces the differences between different categories of material, weighing conflicting factors to reach a design...

  10. Engineering Communication with Tinker Toys

    29 Jun 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Amber Genau

    This resource describes three variations on an engineering communication activity using Tinker Toys.  In the main activity, small groups of students are given a bag of Tinker Toys and instructed to build anything they like.  They are then asked to write down building instructions for...

  14. Nanocrete

    06 Feb 2020 | | Contributor(s):: kim Grady, James Marti (editor), Deb Newberry (editor), Nano-Link Center for Nanotechnology Education

    This module introduces students to the nanotechnologies, processes, and methods being tested by industry to prepare strong and lightweight cementitious products and systems. The module takes the learner through processing a material (called microgrinding or powder milling) to reduce its size...

  15. Latest Developments in the Field of the Metal-Insulator Transition in Two Dimensions

    11 Nov 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Sergey Kravchenko

    Ignited by the discovery of the metal-insulator transition, the behavior of low-disorder two-dimensional (2D) electron systems is currently the focus of a great deal of attention.  In the strongly-interacting limit, electrons are expected to crystallize into a quantum Wigner crystal...
