The Collaborative Research Center Function by Switching at Kiel University focuses on tiny, molecular machines in the field of nano-sciences. The intricate research topics are processed and transformed into different educational learning approaches. This is done through close cooperation between chemistry education and science researchers. A major focus lies on school students' hands- and minds-on experiences of micro- and nano-scale (switchable) structures and layers. Two examples, the determination of a soap-bubble film thickness and the generation of a micro- and nanostructured surface with Lotus-Effect (R), are discussed in additional worksheets. Both topics offer ways and means to improve learning approaches in view of the perception of surfaces and related structure-property relationships.
