Tags: NACK Network


The Nanotechnology Applications and Career Knowledge (NACK) Network is the NSF National ATE Center for Nanotechnology Workforce Development. Through resource sharing, providing course materials, and stressing broad student preparation, we will help create and sustain economically viable nanotechnology education across the U.S.

The mission of NACK is to enable Nanotechnology Education at 2-year Community and Technical Colleges and 4-year Universities and Colleges in Partnership with Community and Technical Colleges.  You can read more about the NACK Network at their website, nano4me.org.

Several of NACK's instructional modules and laboratory exercises are published here on nanoHUB.
