Description:

This is a quick activity (on page 2 of the PDF) about the forces of gravity and surface tension and how their behavior is influenced by size. Learners will fill a normal sized cup and a tiny cup with water, predict what will happen when the cups are flipped upside down, and then test their predictions. This activity introduces learners to how different physical forces and material properties dominate at the nanoscale. Also related to linked video, DragonflyTV Nano: Gecko Feet.
