            “Nanotube Balloons” is a large display made of balloons that can be used to draw visitors to a program on nanotechnology. Visitors observe how the carbon atoms are arranged in a carbon nanotube. The nanotube balloon model can be pre-constructed by museum staff, or visitors can help to build it. The balloon structure provides an intriguing hook for other programs, like “Forms of Carbon” or the “World of Carbon Nanotubes."

              “Nanotube Balloons” is a cart activity that introduces visitors to the structure and properties of carbon nanotubes. Visitors learn how the carbon atoms are arranged in a carbon nanotube, and that nanotubes are extremely strong and have interesting electrical properties. During the program, visitors help build a model of a carbon nanotube---out of balloons!

                This cart demo is about Biobarcodes, a nanomedical technology that allows for massively parallel testing for disease diagnosis. Visitors learn about antibodies, how each antibody binds to a unique protein, and how biobarcoding uses nanoparticles, antibodies, DNA and magnetism to detect diseases earlier than we could detect before. Visitors assemble a jigsaw puzzle that models how Biobarcodes work.

                      During the “Cell Phone Rules” training activity, participants discuss the rules and etiquette they follow for using their cell phones at home, work, school, and other places. This facilitated discussion helps participants reflect on the ways that we negotiate with technologies and make decisions about how they will be part of our lives. 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.
