Making MicroMachines LM and DVD Kit

Making MicroMachines LM and DVD Kit ( 1 Files )

This category contains the learning module MEMS: Making MicroMachines.  This learning modules supports the MEMS: Making Micro Machines DVD Kit.  The learning module consists of three (3) activities and a pre and post-quiz.  You can download the activity from this website.  To learn more about this learning module, kit and DVD, and to order the kit, visit our kit store.

Comparison of Scale:  Macro, Micro, Nano

Comparison of Scale: Macro, Micro, Nano ( 1 Files )

This Category includes the Comparison of Scale - Macro, Micro, Nano Learning Module (Instructor guide, Participant guide and PowerPoint presentation).  In order to grasp many of the concepts associated with MEMS and MEMS devices and components, one needs to understand scale and the size of objects associated with different scales. This learning module contains instructional material as well as activities and assessments that allow students to better understand scale, specifically scale in the micro and nano ranges.  Students identify and study objects 100 microns in size, and smaller.

The following SCME YouTube video can be used to support the concepts introduced in this learning module:

Comparison of Scale (14:28 minutes)
