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

Students unlock the properties of shape-Memory Alloys; 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 investigate the properties of Nanomaterials and Nanofluids and interrogate fundamental principles via experimentation and through the Quantum built interactive framework - 'MOTF Amazing Race'.

Students will engage in multiple experiments and demonstrations using the Shape Memory Alloy Nitinol. They will undertake an extended investigation into the load bearing capacity of Shape Memory Alloys and their use as construction materials.

Students will explore trends and patterns across the Periodic Table in a fun, interactive manner using tablets and games including an introduction to electronic configuration as a road map to the Periodic Table including the Transition Metals.
