Seeing Nano: Using Scaning Electron...
Zoom
This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, teaches students about Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM). Nanoparticles are too small to be viewed with a light microscope so a SEM must be employed which "uses electrons to image the surface of a material." A Teacher's Preparatory Guide and Student Worksheet are provided that give detailed guidance for completing the lab.

Jumping beans are actually a section of a seed capsule. Laspeyresia saltitans, a small gray moth, inserts its larva into the seed capsule. The larva eats the inside of the jumping 'bean' and flings itself from one wall to the other.
