Curriculum Overview

The labs below explore the properties of water flow. In the Chromatography lab, students observe and understand the way fluids interact with a stationary phase while being introduced to chromatography. In the Narrow Tub lab, students observe capillary action through the use of capillary glass tubes and colored water. Students learn that when things are very small, gravity may not seem to work. They come to the understanding that some forces can override gravity in certain cases. They are introduced to a branch of nanotechnology called microfluidics, which uses microchannels to direct fluid flow.
