An Easy (Bake) Approach to an Edible NanoLab
This lesson, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, uses an EasyBake oven and edible materials as a means to interest younger students in nanotechnology. The creation of a 'wafer' in the EasyBake oven simulates concepts in chip fabrication for electronic devices, such as the cell phones and gaming devices they use on a daily basis. The included 'Teacher's Guide' details needed materials, step-by-step instructions, and assessment rubrics. A 'Student Guide' includes activity instructions and questions to assess comprehension.
