2012 Classroom Full of NanoKids: Pt 1: NanoSports & Nano’Tainment

To see more creative NanoKids, click here

Last year, I gave my students the opportunity to earn a very small amount of extra credit by making a few creative NanoKids in the style of Jim Tour‘s NanoPutians. I encouraged them to be as creative and unique as possible – but they can’t break the octet rule. Every molecule must adhere to its normal valence. Like last year, over the next 3 weeks, I’ll be hanging my student’s creations on my virtual refrigerator door that is this blog space 🙂 This week’s installment is subtitled NanoSports and Nano’Tainment.  The Nano’Tainment category is NanoKids featured in movies, TV, or video games.

Next week: NanoPeople Doing NanoThings!
