Bin Yang grows quantum dots (the arrows point to them) as part of his nanotechnology research.
Exploring the Nanoworld from the University of Wisconsin – Madison.
The web site aims to “brings the “wow” and potential of nanotechnology and advanced materials to the public.” I think they still have quite a bit of work to do to reach that goal. It is good to see some effort made to do this but I hope we can do much better.
And this is the best sites I looked at today. All the sites were funded by the NSF as education and outreach efforts. They really need to do a much better job with this outreach. I believe we need to spend money to improve education and outreach but we need to do so in a way that is much more engaging.
We need material teachers can use to engage students.
