Synthesis and Stability of Silver...
This lab, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, uses silver nanoplates as a tool to explore the relationship between shape and optical properties. Students will be able to compare material properties and behaviors at both the nano- and macroscale through the exercise, as well as experience with scale and unit conversion. A 'Teacher's Preparatory Guide' is included, featuring needed materials, detailed procedural instructions, and additional resources. A 'Student Guide' includes detailed, step-by-step instructions, space for recording data, and analysis questions.

AMSER is a portal of educational resources and services built specifically for use by those in Community and Technical Colleges but free for anyone to use.
AMSER is funded by the National Science Foundation as part of the National Science Digital Library, and is being created by a team of project partners led by Internet Scout.
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.
