This is simply a list of
a couple of areas, mostly scientific, which I find interesting. Some of the sites include or include
links to interesting pictures or video.
with the manipulation and construction of structures on the molecular
scale. For an idea of scope, a
carbon atom has a radius of about 0.08 nanometers (nm), a carbon-carbon
bond is typically about 0.15 nm, and structures usually considered to be on
the nanoscale are less than 100 nm.
Quantum Mechanical Principles
With the development of quantum mechanics
throughout the twentieth century, our atomic level understanding has
shifted considerably from the days of the “stick and ball” sort
of model. A challenge in physical science
education is being able to contrast the “unnatural” (compared to our everyday experiences)
world of quantum mechanics to our everyday large scale experiences.
