Abstract Title: Learning How to "See" and "Manipulate" Nanoparticles Utilizing Noncontact Atomic Force Microscopy
Abstract: This paper reports on the effect of students' understanding of the basic concepts of nanotechnology tools, through activities set in relevant undergraduate courses. Three hours of hands-on learning took place, which focused on building learners' basic understanding of nanotechnology tools such as Atomic Force Microscopes (AFM). This learning activity enhanced high school students' understanding in the operation of AFM, in the areas of sensing nanoparticles by measuring van der Waals interactions, understanding AFM resolution and manipulating nanoparticles
