View Resource Aerospace Materials Failure Modes Instructor Notes

This Microsoft Word document from the Aerospace Manufacturing Education Project is intended to accompany a PowerPoint presentation on aerospace materials failure modes. That PowerPoint document may be found here along with other accompanying materials. In the presentation and accompanying notes, the materials used in constructing aircraft are examined, including metals, ceramics,...

View Resource Reactivity of Magnesium Metal for Biodegradable Medical Implants

This learning activity will provide an opportunity for students to develop their critical thinking and research skills in chemistry by asking them to investigate corrosion rates of metals and draw conclusions from their experiments. Students will measure corrosion rates in specific alloys and apply their findings to real world issues, such as medical implants. This module is intended for high...

View Resource Synthesis and Stability of Silver Nanoparticles

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,...

View Resource The Effects of Gold and Silver Nanoparticles on Brine Shrimp: A Toxicology Study

In this lab students will study nanoparticles, specifically dilutions of gold and silver. Students will study brine shrimp and explore "...the effects of exposing living organisms to different nanoparticles at various concentrations." There is a twenty-one page teacher's preparatory guide, containing: lists of equipment and materials needed, activity procedure, and student guide with answer key....

View Resource Aerospace Materials Failure Modes Presentation

This PowerPoint document from the Aerospace Manufacturing Education Project provides an overview of aerospace materials failure modes. The presentation will allow students to examine the question: "How can aircraft structural materials fail?" The materials used in constructing aircraft are examined, including metals, ceramics, plastics/elastomers and composites.
