Class on a Chip Micro and nano technologies have revolutionized many aspects of our lives from computers to biomedicine. The process of miniaturization has now been applied to educational laboratory equipment, allowing macroscale systems to be shrunk to fit on a computer chip. The Class on a Chip System is an array of computer controlled microdevices on a small silicon chip that permit numerous laboratory experiments and demonstrations to be carried out under a microscope. Simple, on-screen controls allow anyone to operate microscale motors and other devices. The System is intended for use in high school physics, engineering, and technology classes. It is used to teach fundamental STEM concepts, as well as significantly improving awareness and knowledge of micro and nano technologies. This education tool is a paradigm shifting system that has the potential to transform science and engineering education at many levels. The Class on a Chip System will significantly impact learning outcomes by immersing students in an interesting and knowledge building environment using advanced, interactive micro-technologies. The System incorporates state-of-the-art microdevices, but is accessible by a broad range of students. In this workshop, participants will utilize the Class on a Chip System to conduct a couple of representative experiments and evaluate the curriculum under development.
