A growing number of consumer products employ nanotechnology. We have assembled a set of activity sheets describing some common and not so common applications of nanotechnology that students can relate to. In general, these products take advantage of some unique property of materials at the nanoscale to provide improved functionality. We hope that you will find these activities enjoyable and instructive.
