nanoHUB.org- features simulations, learning modules, and interactive tools for learning about nanotechnology (the design and production of structures, devices, and systems one atom or one molecule at a time. Analyze the electronic properties of different nano materials and the optical properties of nanoparticles. Explore molecular conduction, nanofluids, and nanowires. Create simulations of nanoelectronic and nanoelectromechanical systems.) Registration freee but required.


Nanotechnology - shows animations of molecular crystals, material strength experiments, shockwaves, interatomic interactions in soft and hard materials, a microscopic model of friction, atomic motion across a liquid-solid interface, water molecules moving through carbon nanotubes, nanobud (a newly discovered material), nano machinery, nano differential gears, a molecular sorter, a nano conveyor belt, and more. (National Science Foundation)


Madison Materials Research Science & Engineering Center - introdution to nanotechnology; learn how we can "see" atoms, manipulate them, & create nano-architectural wonders; watch nanoscience demonstrations; read profiles of nanotechnologists; look through nanotechnology slide shows & course descriptions; manipulate an interactive polyhedral model.


Teaching Resources

Exploring the Nanoworld Teaching Modules - incorporate nanotechnology into chemistry & technology classes; modules explore x-ray diffraction & scanning probe microscopy, shape-memory alloys, light emitting diodes, & ferrofluid while others examine magnetism, memory metals, & "how we can 'see' what we cannot see." (Modules include overviews, curriculum suggestions, lesson plans, guided notes, experiments, & assessments.)
