An inexpensive soft lithography laboratory appropriate for high school and college chemistry courses was developed by RETs Christina Talbot and Colleen O’Shell, and graduate student Logan McCarty of Professor George Whitesides’ laboratory. Students are able to perform replica molding and microcontact printing using common objects such as feathers and shower curtains. The lab module has been piloted with high school and college students, and has been shared with high school teachers in various teacher workshops.
