Exploring Nanotechnology through Consumer Products
Science and Society
After an introductory PowerPoint on nanotechnology students are given a chance in groups to explore consumer products through an information sheet provided over available consumer products. After learning about products students can create a presentation for a particular product; test their product; or research a career in nanotechnology. NOTE: The list of consumer products in this lesson may or may not be in production anymore. The lesson was developed in 2006 so many products may no longer be available. Use the information sheets to explain how products were developed and used -- or are currently used. NNIN and NNCI do not endorse these products and present them for information and education only.
