We’ll bring our science programs to you.
We partner with school districts to support science learning. We offer district-wide elementary, middle, and high school programs, either virtually or in-person.
We collaborate with a range of partners to innovate in science education. Together, we go further.
In this activity, learners will be able to measure themselves in nanometers. A nanometer is a billionth of a meter, a unit of measurement used in nanotechnology. Learners can measure themselves using a printout of the nano ruler in the PDF, then compare that to standard measurements of themselves in inches or centimeters.
Preparation Time: Under 5 minutes
