  Not at all A Little Mostly Very
The size scales for atoms, molecules and cells
Atomic and molecular interactions with nanostructures are highly sensitive to differences in their physical sizes and chemical properties.
The same material in nanoparticle form is significantly more active for most chemical reactions because of the significantly larger surface area available for interaction as compared to the bulk material.
Biology: Enzymes are proteins that catalyze biochemical reactions and
the activity depends on the temperature and pH of the surroundings.
Chemistry: The reactions rates of atoms and molecules with other materials in liquid, such as nanoparticles, nanopores, and membrane filters, etc. is determined by the dynamics diffusion.
Scientific Investigation and Experimentation: Formulate explanations using logic and evidence.

  Not at all Somewhat Mostly Very Much
Were there sufficient materials in our supply kit for you to complete this lab with all of your students?
Did the hands-on activity during the Saturday workshop help you successfully conduct the experiment with your students?
Did the UCLA researchers’ presentations and your interaction with them during the workshop help you explain the science and answer all questions asked by your students?
Did the discussions amongst your science teacher colleagues, led by the Teacher Instructor during the Saturday workshop, help make it practical to integrate this experiment into your curriculum and bring the hands-on activity into your classroom?
Overall, how useful were the UCLA Saturday workshop activities in helping you implement this laboratory experiment in your classroom successfully?
