  1. Nanoparticles Land to Ocean: Understanding the Effect of Nanoparticle Pollutants

    15 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Chloe Figuerido, NNCI Nano (editor)

    Pollution, both macroscopic and microscopic, is an important environmental issue for aquatic ecosystems. For this lab, students will model how nanoparticle pollution travels from land to water. This lab isa 2-part series of labs designed to help students understand the effect that nanoscale...

  2. Nanotechnology and Cosmetics

    15 Jan 2020 | | Contributor(s):: Rochelle Lofstrand, NNCI Nano

    This is a series of four lessons which build upon each other to explore the use of nanotechnology in cosmetics as well as the social and ethical issues associated with nano-based cosmetics. The purpose of these lessons is to familiarize students with the chemistry of cosmetics and the anatomy...
