Technology Tuesday – Reaching Out To Atoms

Hello Everyone!  Hopefully your final exams have gone well, are going well, or will go well for you!

This Technology Tuesday is devoted to outreach.  If you recall from past Technology Tuesdays, some have focused on tools to use when reaching out to younger engineers in the making.  Well I happened to come across a video that goes into to describing the size of atoms.

As kids usually do not have a sound foundation on size, this educational video goes into great detail on what atoms are and how big (small) they actually are.  It uses relations that kids can relate to; like blueberries, football fields, and grapefruit.

Watch for yourself and see just how big (small) an atom is.
