Nano Lab

In this section, you will find resources for hands-on activities to be run in the classroom, in science centres or at home, so that you can experience casino different properties of the nanoscale and some of their possible applications. 

In addition to the tools developed by NANOYOU, you will also find resources from other Internet sites in this section.

In this experiment you will analyse some innovative materials that are highly water repellent, stainless and require less cleaning thanks to their surface nano-engineering. Those materials have been developed using nature as an inspiration, since...
