This activity from the Midwest Regional Center for Nanotechnology Education (NANO-LINK) contains instructions for an experiment to explore the electromagnetic spectrum and nanoscience. The three-part activity will use sunscreen as an example of applied nanoscience, using photo chromic paper and light sources to look at the "relationship between energy (wavelength) and physical geometry...(nanoparticles)." This activity is intended for students with at least an eighth grade science education and can be downloaded in .pdf format.
