Zoom In! A Nanoscience Claymation Video Project Designed for Students K-3.
Because young people in levels K-3 are exposed to digital media on a daily basis, we recognized the importance of reaching them using a familiar format. Hence, we developed a claymation Zoom In! movie that follows the "adventures" of Gwen Pym, a girl "nanoscientist", in her quest for a dress that cannot be stained. The use of Claymation video addresses concepts of scales, surface tension, hydrophobicity and function determined by structure for elementary school students.
