The conference for people who code for libraries. An annual gathering of technologists from around the world, who largely work for and with libraries, archives, and museums and have a commitment to open technologies.
This document, created by Pennsylvania State University and hosted by the Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge Network, serves as a guide for a laboratory activity where students are introduced to the concepts and processes of contact lithography. The lab guide includes objectives, background information on photolithography and its application in nanofabrication, step-by-step directions to the lab activity itself, including links to video demonstrations, and post-lab questions to test student comprehension. In order to access and download this material, users must complete a free registration.
This exercise, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, covers the concept of nanobacteria. In this lesson, students will "calculate surface area, draw graphs, and approximate the populations of bacteria and nanobes." This exercise will run more smoothly if students have an understanding linear functions. Before completing this lab, students must know how to calculate the surface area of a circle, draw and label a graph, and define circumference and radius. A teacher guide, student guide, and Next Generation Science Standards for this lesson are included.
