This database lists nanoscale science and engineering education resources by topic area, grade level, core discipline, STEM content area, and resource type.  It also indicates if the resource is inquiry based, mapped to standards, and the nanoscience big ideas involved. Links to the organizations that created the resources are provided.

The contributing organizations are:

California NanoSystems Institute

CK-12 Foundation


Institute for Chemical Education

McREL Nanoleap


MWM Materials World Modules 








NISE Network 

NNIN Nanotechnology Education

North Carolina State University Nanoscale Education Group

NSTA Learning Center  


University of Wisconsin MRSEC
