        Nano: Hockey Sticks

        Jordan recently got a new CNT (that stands for Carbon Nanotube) hockey stick! He and his friend Nick had some questions about nanotubes so they decided to get some answers and find out: Do nanotubes really make a better hockey stick? They went to the Boston Museum of Science to talk to Tim, a nano-expert, about all things nano. Tim explained that when carbon atoms come together they can form a honeycomb shape, and when those honeycombs are rolled up, they form a nanotube. Once they had learned what a nanotube was, they decided to test their hockey stick against a wooden hockey stick and a composite hockey stick to see which of the three was faster.
