View Resource Osmosis is Serious Business!

This case study examines different aspects of osmosis in living cells. Both plant and human cells are examined, specifically the hypertonic environment's influence on the different types of cells. The lesson could be used in high school or undergraduate coursework. The case study and teaching notes may be downloaded in PDF format. The site also includes a section for instructor feedback where...

View Resource How Catalysts Work

This demonstration, presented by the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, exposes students to the functionality of catalysts on a nanoscale. This lesson is "a great way to introduce or review reactants, catalysts, and adsorption, desorption, and diffusion. Use this demonstration after the Surface Area-to-Volume Ratio of Nanoparticles lab." A Teacher Preparation Guide, Student Guides,...

View Resource Diffusion Limited Aggregation: Growing Fractal Structures

This site, created by Boston University's Center for Polymer Studies, provides the description and instructions for, as well as the link to, the "Diffusion Limited Aggregation: Growing Fractal Structures" applet. This applet strives to describe, classify, and measure different random fractal patterns in nature. Additionally, the website provides an image gallery to present different types of...

View Resource Micro/Nano Processing Technology

This course introduces the theory and technology of micro/nano fabrication. Lectures and laboratory sessions focus on basic processing techniques such as diffusion, oxidation, photolithography, chemical vapor deposition, and more. Through team lab assignments, students are expected to gain an understanding of these processing techniques, and how they are applied in concert to device fabrication....

View Resource Diffusion, Osmosis, and Dialysis

In this activity, by the Concord Consortium's Molecular Literacy project, students will learn the concepts of diffusion, osmosis and dialysis. The site is broken down into all three concepts, this allows students to learn at their own pace and return to a lesson if needed. A combination of colorful images, insightful text and comprehensive quizzes makes this a useful educational resource. The...
