Nano-Link will be upgrading our website this summer!  Over the weekend of June 17-18 our site will be moved to a different home, with a new look and feel and lots of great new features.  

Our web address is going to stay the same, so you still will find us at http://www.nano-link.org.  But behind the scenes we are gong to be moving to different web and email servers.  As we are starting to make the changes needed for this, you may find that certain things on our current site aren't quite the way they used to be leading up to the move. 

If you have any issues, please contact us immediately at help@nano-link.org so we can help you get the answers and resources you need! 


One of the key features of nanomaterials is that the dominant forces they are subject to are different than the ones in student’s everyday lives. Students assume, from their life experiences, that gravity will dominate the nanoscale as it does the macro scale. This module focuses students’ attention on the kinds of interactions that nanomaterials have with contaminants. One of the key pieces of information students are given on the Contaminant and Technology Cards is the kind of forces that a material experiences.

Required materials:

*System scenarios (1 set per class) – provided within the module

*Contaminant Cards (1 set per group of 3–4 students) – provided within the module

*NanoTechnology Cards (1 set per group of 3–4 students) – provided within the module

Chart paper and markers or some other mechanism for students to present their system design

*Denotes materials sent by Nano-Link to the educator

  To request materials you must complete the "NIP Registration Form" available in the Nano-Infusion menu.
