Teaching middle school or high school students? Use these resources to help kids understand what nanotechnology is and how it may impact their lives. You might start by watching Mark Ratner's seminar A Gentle Introduction to Nanotechnology and Nanoscience. Check out the various animations that we have to explain nanoscience concepts. Try running a simple tool online, such as CNTbands.
