During the “Light Switch” training activity, staff collaboratively draw out the systems and people that are required in order for a light to turn on and off at the flick of a switch. This facilitated discussion helps participants reflect on the ways that technologies are embedded in bigger systems.

This film is part of the NISE Network's "Nano and Society" workshop resources package. These materials were designed to prepare museum educators to engage the public in conversations about the relationship between nanotechnology and society.
