Nanotechnology and the NAE Grand Challenge Reverse Engineer the Brain
14 Aug 2017 | Contributor(s):: Edward Davis, Virginia Davis, Joni Lakin
This group of materials is designed to provide a framework to teach students in an introductory engineering course basic nanotechnology concepts. The materials use the NAE grand challenge “Reverse Engineering the Brain” to underpin the need and potential for nanotechnology to address...
Learning Module: Comparison of Scale - Macro, Micro, Nano
06 Jun 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)
In order to grasp many of the concepts associated with micro and nano-size devices, one needs to understand scale and the size of objects associated with different scales. This learning module introduces various concepts associated with scale, and a comparison of the macro, micro, and...

A profile of a Nano EPICS High School - Agawam High School
10 May 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Tamecia Raishaun Jones
This is a short profile of an EPICS High School that has found a way to integrate nano into its curriculum. The profile describes how the teacher used her specialized background in marine biology to create a plan for nano project in a marine biology classroom. At the time, this...
[Illinois] Epigenetics With Semiconductor Nanotechnology
13 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Aditya Sarathy
DNA methylation is an epigenetic modification involving the addition of a methyl group to DNA, which is heavily involved in gene expression and regulation, thereby critical to the progression of diseases such as cancer. In this work we show that detection and localization of DNA methylation can...

[Illinois] Genomics with Semiconductor Nanotechnology
22 Dec 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Jean-Pierre Leburton
The single-atom thickness of monolayer graphene makes it an ideal candidate for DNA sequencing as it can scan molecules passing through a nanopore at high resolution. Additionally, unlike most insulating membranes, graphene is electrically active, and this property can be exploited to control...
First-Year Engineering Students' Nanotechnology Awareness, Exposure and Motivation Before and After Educational Interventions
07 Nov 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Yi Kong
Educational interventions in first-year engineering programs can positively affect students’ awareness of nanotechnology by introducing students to basic nanotechnology concepts and motivating them to follow nanotechnology-related career paths. The research question examined in this study...
Work-in-Progress: First-Year Engineering Students' Self-Reported Knowledge of Nanotechnology – The Development of a Coding Scheme
07 Nov 2014 | | Contributor(s):: Oguz Hanoglu, Kelsey Joy Rodgers, Yi Kong, Krishna Madhavan, Heidi A Diefes-Dux
Different types of instruction are used at the college-level for increasing students’ knowledge of nanotechnology. Purdue University introduced nanotechnology to first-year engineering students in an introductory engineering course through two nanotechnology-related projects. The students...

[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Graphene Atomic Shrink Wrap for Nanosandwiching Biomolecules
30 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Joshua D. Wood
Graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms, has been hotly scrutinized for its desirable electronic applications. Still, graphene has hardly been used as an atomically thin membrane. Graphene membranes are conformal to surfaces, entrapping liquids, gases, and nanoparticles....
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Neural Correlates of Externally and Internally Originating Emotional Distraction Effects on Working Memory
30 May 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alexandru D. Iordan
Balanced emotion-cognition interactions are critical for healthy functioning. Clinical studies suggest that symptoms of impaired executive control and enhanced emotional distractibility observed in affective disorders are linked to dysfunctional interactions between a dorsal executive system and...
