Arlington, VA 22203

NSE Provides Important New Perspectives to Education
It is important to introduce nanoscale science and engineering (NSE) into current teaching practice at all levels. For the past two decades people have been working on ways to do just that. After years of shaping nanoscale education resources into useful materials, they are ready for larger audiences.

At the nanoscale materials behave differently. This is why water roles off of lotus leaves and geckos can walk on the ceiling. Looking at these differences brings fresh insights that fit nicely into standards-based teaching.  Studying the nanoscale brings together biology, chemistry, physics and engineering into a truly multidisciplinary adventure.

– See proven nanoscale education resources from around the world

– Talk with over 25 different developers (including NanoSchoolBox-Europe, NanoDays-NISENet, NanoHub-Purdue)

– Learn where to find these incredible resources

– Explore ways you can use them

Nanotech Is Enabling Solutions to Societal Challenges
Understanding the different ways materials behave at the nanoscale will lead to new solutions to societal problems. NSE is being used to upgrade information technologies; create new medical diagnostics and therapeutics; and build affordable, renewable energy sources.  Further, we need an informed public in order to address concerns about nanostructures’ environmental, safety and health impacts.
