    Not bad was good had some information, but was vague and dry!

    That was one of the best presentations I have ever gone through so far. The presentation was supported by hardcore evidence and real time examples that gave me a brief picture what to expect in indulging further into the world of nanotechnology. I felt deeply inspired to delve deeper into the nanotechnology field and it feels like a new world awaits me soon. Good Job!!!

    Absolutely perfect engagement. A presentation well done. My technologically impaired grandfather could smile and say something good about the sciences! Only quick-drying paint has managed to produce the same effect. Again, well done.

    This was quite interesting and even understandable to me, a humanities major.

    I am presently conducting a summer engineering workshop for mostly minority eighth graders and, if it is not a violation, I would like to share a good part of your lecture slides with the Parents when they come for the Parent Session later this week.

    Please advise (blalock@purdue.edu)

    The introduction to length scales is very well done – it feels like it was written for someone completely unfamiliar with the subject matter (ie it\‘s friendly), and it does a good job of defining just what is meant by the word \“nano.\” Even though I\‘m comfortable with the length scales, having encountered them in prior class work, I still feel that I gained more familiarity from the discussion.

    I did feel that the nano-tip discussion didn\‘t tie in very well to the \“design scale of nature\” theme, but that\‘s not very problematic as the design scale was addressed in the length scale discussion.

    Overall, the examples do a great job of emphasizing the scientific, social, health-related, and economic importance of nanoscience. This lecture answers the what without getting lost in the how, and really does a good job of whetting the tongue of one who is excited about nanoscience to begin with (someone who logged into a site called nanohub, for example). I think it is a perfect first lecture for one wanting to know something beyond the media hype about nanoscience.
