Four nanotechnology lessons are available for your classroom use. Each of the lessons illustrates a nanotechnology phenomenon through a macroscopic analog. Several of them use materials that are not commonly available in schools. We can provide materials on a limited basis until are able to obtain them yourself.

We are developing several additional lessons that we will post in upcoming months.

Upcoming Info


  • We are developing new nanotechnology lessons.  Look for them in the near future.
  • We have expanded the relationship between schools and our corporate partners through our Outreach Providers Network (OPN).  It is our vision to bring corporate scientists, engineers, technicians, and business people into the classroom, using modern technology.  We have created a repository of short video interviews with our corporate partners for teachers use to show students the journeys that others have taken to careers in science and technology.   These interviews can be used in the classroom or for home assignments as the basis for discussions about nanotechnolgy careers.
