Product Details

Discover the incredible properties of silver nanoparticles in this hands-on nanotechnology activity. Students create their own colloidal silver solution, observe the ability of the solution to scatter light and learn about its antimicrobial properties. The unique physical and chemical properties of silver nanoparticles and macroscopic silver will be compared and contrasted. Students will see how the silver nanoparticles appear gold rather than silver! Teacher Notes, background material and reproducible student handouts are included.

Super Value Kit is complete for 5 classes of 30 students working in pairs. Flashlight or laser pointer is required and available separately.
