National Nanotechnology Initiative

  • Nice links, material for a wide audience
  • Nothing significant

Here at the National Nanotechnology Initiative (NNI), the smallest of things can have the greatest impact. Now you too can explore this world of smaller than small, by exploring many of the resources available on the NNI’s website. If you’re new to nanotechnology (or you simply enjoy colorful brochures), download the brochure entitled “Nanotechnology: Big Things from a Tiny World.”  The Nanotech Facts section of the page also provides a nice introduction to the field. Seasoned researchers may be interested in the many links to nanotechnology research and education centers, as well as the information regarding funding opportunities and recent research news. Finally, the “Education Center” contains a good deal of information for K-12 students, university students, and teachers. It’s no small feat making people understand why there’s such a big fuss about nanotechnology, but the NNI’s website does a nice job making nanotech accessible to the masses.
