Few science curricula explore
the concept of characterization and the development of scientific tools.
During Probing the Unknown, students solve a design problem that promotes
critical thinking, using probes in order to characterize an unknown
world. The concept of probing is modeled after the use of Atomic Force
Microscopy (AFM) technology.
