The LSPM team's goal is to teach a wide audience the underlying principles driving the world-wide interest in nanotechnology by creating FLASH animations geared toward all ages and illustrating how a scanning probe microscope can be used to study objects at the nanometer scale.

This animation is part of a museum exhibit developed for Children's Museums. For more information about this exhibit please visit the Lego SPM website.
