Nanotechnologies: Where should they take us? Have your say


Large educational project run by the University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (UW MRSEC). The aim is to enhance public understanding of science and engineering through the central theme of "Exploring the Nanoworld, Innovating through Materials" using web dissemination to a range of educators, presentations in public venues, and contributions to popular publications and media. Numerous experiments are offered, from fundamental concepts to applications. Teacher document & online protocol, videos and photos of experiments, and additional reading. Several experiments developed by the UW MRSEC EDUCATIONAL GROUP have been simplified even further and transformed in great informal activities for all ages, simple experiments, games and more disseminated through the NICENET Project.
