The Power of Graphene

This The Power of Graphene activity & project also includes:

To prepare for the activity, STEM classes read about nanotechnology and the amazing properties of graphene. They collect a graphene sample from pencils, and then connect them into simple circuits to determine whether it makes a better conductor or insulator. Note that although Next Generation standards are listed for primary grades, this activity is best suited for upper-elementary science classes.
