This Nanotechnology Principles Lab: Synthesis of Nanoparticles is provided by SHINE: Seattle's Hub for Industry-driven Nanotechnology Education. "This lab consists of activities designed to teach students about the synthesis and applications of gold and silver nanoparticles." Learning Outcomes are provided for two of the three lab activities included.
Learning outcomes for Gold Nanoparticle Sensor lab:
Learning outcomes for Silver Nanoparticle Antimicrobial Properties lab:
This collection of resources includes a Nanoparticle Synthesis and Applications PowerPoint presentation, three lab activities, and data safety sheets.
The Nanoparticle Synthesis and Applications presentation covers topics such as silver nanoparticles, silver nanoparticle products, ethics, the color of gold, salt censors, gold nanoparticles, other gold nanoparticle uses, and more.
The three labs included are Antimicrobrial Properties of Nanoparticles, Gold Nanoparticle Sensor, and Stained Glass. Labs may include learning outcomes, Washington EALR Alignment; Oregon Content Standards Alignment; background information; lists of applications, vocabulary, and materials needed; safety information; pre-lab preparations; pre-lab procedures; pre-lab questions, and more.
For orientation purposes the 'SHINE_Antimicrobrial Properties of Nanoparticles Lab' PDF is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this curriculum.
Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
