Activities
Size Dependent Properties
Surface Area and Volume

Design Project
Designing a Liquid Geyser

Through the following key select activities, students will learn that size does matter. They will investigate how changes in the shape or size of an object affect its surface area to volume ratio (SA/V), which can change dramatically in the nanoscale. When they complete the Activities, they will apply this knowledge to design an “exploding” liquid geyser.

MWM will give students an opportunity to understand the world around them in a way they have never experienced before. The modules promote an awareness of the roles science and technology play in society and guide students to take increased control of their work.
