Crystallography Activities' files

The Crystallography Kit and activities are part of the Crystallography Overview Learning Module.  There are two activities:

  1. Breaking Wafers
  2. Origami Crystal

These activities allow participants to explore the crystal structure of silicon and crystal planes as defined by Miller's indices.  The Crystallography Kit contains two types of silicon wafers (wafers with two different crystal orientations) that are needed by the "Breaking Wafers Activity".  The kit also contain 12 origami templates that are needed for the "Origami Crystal Activity".  The template can also be downloaded using an URL provided in the activity.

The Crystallography Overview Learning Module also contains a third activity that allows participants to demonstrate their understanding of the Miller Index.  This activity require three straight edges (such a rulers or yard sticks) and a rectangular piece of cardboard.  The Learning Moduel Participant is available to everyone.  However, to access the Instructor Guide and related PowerPoint, you must be a registered user of this site.
