Students will read
the scenario on the
back of the Cancer
Detection
Simulation Card,
make a visual
inspection of the
patient, and then
make a prediction
of what might be
wrong with the
patient.

          Updated September 2011
Students will feel
the card to
simulate a clinical
visit. They will hold
the card to the light
to simulate an
X-ray of the
patient. Then they
will write a new
diagnosis of the
patient.


          Updated September 2011
Finally, students
will sprinkle the
simulated
functionalized
nanoparticles over
the person to find
where the
malignant tumors
are. They will then
write a more
accurate diagnosis.

                         To make the
                         Cancer Diagnosis
                         Simulation Cards,
                         use a hole punch
                         to make small
                         disks of thin
                         magnet material
                         from a magnetic
                         sheet. In addition,
                         make several discs
                         from black paper.
                         Use several sizes
                         of hole punches.

                            Print 11 copies of the anatomy
                          graphic. Print each of the patient
                         scenarios on a separate sheet of
                          paper. Spray an adhesive on the
                                 back of the printed image.
                         Lay the black discs and magnetic
                              discs on top of the adhesive.
                           Place the magnetic discs in the
                             correct place for each patient
                                                  scenario.

                         Lay the printed
                         scenario on the
                         back and press
                         to adhere.
                         Laminate all the
                         patient
                         scenarios.




Updated September 2011
                         The teacher or
                         students will
                         prepare iron flakes
                         to be used as
                         simulated
                         nanoparticles.
                         These are not
                         nano sized; they
                         are just used to
                         simulate the
                         functionalized gold
                         nanoparticles.

Take a small piece of steel wool and lay it on a metal
surface.




      Updated September 2011
Lay the battery leads on the steel wool
until enough iron particles are produced.

   This module is one of a series designed to introduce faculty and high school
   students to the basic concepts of nanotechnology. Each module includes a
  PowerPoint presentation, discussion questions, and hands-on activities, when
                                    applicable.

                                    The series was funded in part by:
