The Blood Glucose Monitor

Subject: Biology, Chemistry

Audience: High School

Students are introduced to glucose monitors, how these biosensors are being improved with naotechnology, and they test glucose levels.

The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study

Subject: Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science

Audience: High School, Adult

Students will synthesize and prepare serial dilutions of gold and silver nanoparticles in order to determine their individual toxicity on brine shrimp. The brine shrimp are used as a model organism to examine the potential toxicity effects of nanoparticles.

Coffee Break with Nanoscience: Film Formation and "Coffee Rings"

Subject: Chemistry, Physical science

Audience: High School, Adult

This lab explores issues that engineers and scientists face in working with thin film i.e., dealing with two phenomena that work against them: cracking and the coffee ring effect.

Synthesis and Stability of Silver Nanoparticles

Subject: Chemistry

Audience: Adult

The purpose of this experiment is to conduct synthesis of silver nanoplates and explore their shape stability that affects optical property (referred to as localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR).
