There are two activities in this lesson, the Fly Prison and the Water Maze.  The Fly Prison is a hands-on modeling activity designed to introduce students to the area of nanotechnology and give them a basic understanding of how researchers build very small devices by the self-assembly of molecules.  The water maze is a follow-up activity to give the students a chance to practice and demonstrate what they have learned.
