Exploring at the Nanoscale

Nano-nano! Nanotechnology can seem like it's from another planet! After learning about this tiny technology, collaborative groups experiment with how smaller particles affect chemical reactions. They do this by immersing a whole and a crushed antacid tablet into equal amounts of water. Nanotechnology is a fascinating topic for your STEM curriculum.
