Abstract: We present some of the social and educational implications of our recently constructed operational demonstration model of an atomic force microscope. Our device employs and highlights the fundamental concepts and principles involved in nanoscale magnification microscopy. With this device we demonstrate concepts such as mechanical and electrical gain, noise, and ease of construction while offering an affordable and robust instrument. The hardware and electronics required to build the entire device may be purchased for less than $1,000. The entire project takes roughly a semester to complete. For K-12 teachers looking for a device to demonstrate the fundamentals of nanoscience to their students, ours offers accessibility and affordability.
