In a physics for poets class I do some things to talk about Macro and Micro time dimension scales:

Speed of a pulse in a Coax wire
metronome
Clock
Speed of light

You might say it is a kind of show and tell, Powers of Ten type of demonstration for the time dimension.

Does anyone do something similar?

What do you use?

Any creative ideas?

Thanks,

Do a little more of that work which you have confessed to be good,
Which you feel that society and your most Just Judge rightly demand of you.
Cultivate the tree which you have found to bear fruit in your soil.
If you have any experiments you would like to try, try them.
Now's your chance.

Henry David Thoreau, Journal entry, 1850.
