2012 SMILE Workshop on Nanoscience

Wednesday August 8th, 2012, at La Sells Center, Oregon State University

Powerpoint presentation for the workshop: smile_workshop_v4.ppt

This three hour workshop for high school teachers introduced seven hands-on classroom activities. The activities included exfoliating graphene, electronic measurements of playdough (the shape of the playdough changes its resistance), making scale models of nanoelectronic circuits, and a classroom version of an atomic force microscope.
