Instructors who will be teaching in an Interactive Television classroom can use this activity to familiarize themselves with the various equipment options available in these rooms. A matching activity is used as a self-assessment.
Learners read how nanotechnology is creating new jobs in emerging industries while making others obsolete. This colorful and animated activity also looks at the types of products being created through the use of technology and how educational institutions have responded.
Learners listen to a lecture given during the early days of nanotechnology titled, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom.” Dr. Richard Feynman made the presentation to the American Physical Society on December 29, 1959. Animation makes this lecture fun to absorb.
Learners answer questions about foundry-related technology and terms using a game board format. This learning object can be used individually, in small groups, or as a class activity to provide an alternative self-assessment tool.
In this animated object, learners read about the uses of nanotechnology. The sciences, engineering, electronics, and other disciplines converge in nanotechnology. Examples are given for applications in manufacturing, biomedicine, and environmental science. Concerns about possible environmental effects are discussed.
