Transistor from Wikipedia
Education Level
High School

The purpose of the following group of lab units is to illustrate properties associated with nanotechnology and the electronics industry through utilization of semiconductors.  By using macro-examples of actual nano-circuitry, students will understand what is happening on the small-scale.  Semiconductors and nano-sized particles have similar properties different from the metals and nonmetals often studied in a typical high school physics or chemistry class.
