In this activity students act as design specialist for Wayne Industries, the leading provider for technologies used in the superhero community, to create and market a specialized superhero tool based on nanoscience and biomimicry. Teams of students learn about nanoscale, biomimicry, and nanoscience and then use their knowledge to design and present the tool they have designed. Worksheets are provided that students complete as they investigate web sites. A rubric for assessing students' designs, teacher resources, and correlations to the National Science Education Standards and the Wisconsin state science standards are included. An audio track is provided.
