Thames & Kosmos Nanotechnology Experiment Kit, Multicolor

With this Thames & Kosmos Nanotechnology Experiment Kit, the intangible, nanoscopic world becomes accessible with hands-on experiments using both scaled-up models and real nanomaterials. Conduct experiments concerning size, scale & orders of magnitude in the International System of Units, to get a feel for just how small a nanometer really is Explore how charcoal is like a nanoscale sponge with filtering experiments Conduct experiments with the hydrophilic (water-lorcoal is like a nanoscale sponge with filtering experiments Conduct experiments with the hydrophilic (water-loving) & hydrophobic (water-hating) properties of different surfaces, which illustrate nanoscale properties Stir up some mixtures & suspensions, & then examine exotic mixtures to learn about the nanoscopic particles suspended in them Shine a laser through a colloidal gold — a suspension of nanoscale particles of gold Learn about the electromagnetic spectrum, laser light, electron microscopy & atomic force microscopy to begin to grasp how we can make nanomaterials visible Experiment with a special material that mimics the nanostructures on a gecko’s footpads that allow it to climb straight up a vertical pane of glass with ease 60-piece Age: 15 years & up Requires 3 button cell LR41 SR41 1.5V batteries (not included) Manufacturer's 1-year limited warranty For warranty information please click here Imported Model number: 631727 Size: One Size.
