Today new artefacts are created every day. Think of plates with the images of Charles and Diana, photographs and record covers of the Beatles, clothes worn on stage by Madonna, imitations and new creations of African art, etc.

Identify the illustrations below. State which of these objects can be considered as artefacts. Classify the artefacts according to their uses, using the provided table. You can repeat this procedure for the modern artefacts.

Modern artefacts

WEAPONS TOOLS CLOTHING JEWELLERY MASKS HOLDERS

Add your own examples of the 20th or 21st century to each column of the Modern Artefacts. Think of examples from the popular culture or the mass media: famous pop stars, soapie stars, film idols, etc.

Activity 3:

To design and create a video cover

[lo 1.5]

STEP 1

Draw ONE of the items from each of the seven columns you entered as examples of MY POPULAR CULTURE in Activity 3.1. Fill as much of the page as possible with your seven illustrations. These images/illustrations (e.g. baseball bat, car, cell-phone, etc.) must represent you.

STEP 2

Use your rulers to draw three vertical columns of 7 cm each and 6 horizontal lines of 5 cm across your illustrations - like a chessboard.

STEP 3

Use pastels or paint to fill each space in the first block with a warm colour and the background with a cold colour. In the next block change the warm and cold colours around - fill the form of the block with a cold colour and the background with a warm colour. Proceed like this, changing the colours for each block. (See example below.)

Activity 4:

To create an artefact holder

[lo 1.5]

STEP 1

Bring your own cardboard holder to class. The sizes may differ, as long as the holder has a lid.

STEP 2

Tear pieces of paper from magazines to paste onto the holder. Choose two complementary colours , e.g. RED and GREEN / YELLOW and PURPLE / BLUE and ORANGE. The lid can be covered with the one colour and the holder with the other, or the holder and the lid can be covered by both colours, forming patterns and /or forms.

STEP 3

Now paste the video cover that you made in the previous activity onto the lid.

STEP 4

Place five personal artefacts inside the holder. These artefacts can be made or can be finished articles. Then exhibit your holder, together with those of the other learners, in a suitable place in the school building.

what is fullerene does it is used to make bukky balls
Devang Reply
are you nano engineer ?
s.
fullerene is a bucky ball aka Carbon 60 molecule. It was name by the architect Fuller. He design the geodesic dome. it resembles a soccer ball.
Tarell
what is the actual application of fullerenes nowadays?
Damian
That is a great question Damian. best way to answer that question is to Google it. there are hundreds of applications for buck minister fullerenes, from medical to aerospace. you can also find plenty of research papers that will give you great detail on the potential applications of fullerenes.

what is the Synthesis, properties,and applications of carbon nano chemistry
Abhijith Reply
Mostly, they use nano carbon for electronics and for materials to be strengthened.

is Bucky paper clear?

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.

Do you know which machine is used to that process?

what is the application of nanotechnology?
Stotaw
In this morden time nanotechnology used in many field . 1-Electronics-manufacturad IC ,RAM,MRAM,solar panel etc 2-Helth and Medical-Nanomedicine,Drug Dilivery for cancer treatment etc 3- Atomobile -MEMS, Coating on car etc. and may other field for details you can check at Google
Azam
anybody can imagine what will be happen after 100 years from now in nano tech world
Prasenjit
after 100 year this will be not nanotechnology maybe this technology name will be change . maybe aftet 100 year . we work on electron lable practically about its properties and behaviour by the different instruments
Azam
name doesn't matter , whatever it will be change... I'm taking about effect on circumstances of the microscopic world
Prasenjit
how hard could it be to apply nanotechnology against viral infections such HIV or Ebola?
Damian
silver nanoparticles could handle the job?
Damian
not now but maybe in future only AgNP maybe any other nanomaterials
Azam
Hello
Uday
I'm interested in Nanotube
Uday
this technology will not going on for the long time , so I'm thinking about femtotechnology 10^-15
Prasenjit
can nanotechnology change the direction of the face of the world
