Students will discover the world of Nanotechnology and Nanomaterials and their use in commercial and biomedical applications.

Shape-Memory Alloys are metals that can be pre-programmed to return to a specific shape when they reach their activation temperature. When cool, they are malleable and can be shaped like a typical metal.

Students will investigate the properties of Nanomaterials and Nanofluids and interrogate fundamental principles via experimentation and the incredibly engaging Amazing Race format.

Students will engage in multiple experiments and demonstrations using the Shape Memory Alloy Nitinol including the Clean Water Engine, the Biomechanical Inchworm and Green Energy Windmills. They will take part in an extended investigation into the load bearing capacity of Shape Memory Alloys and their use as construction materials.
