Discovering Nanotechnology

This course is an exploratory course in the world of Nanotechnology; Encompassing nanoscale science, engineering, and technology, nanotechnology involves imaging, measuring, modeling, and manipulating matter at this length scale. A nanometer is one-billionth of a meter. A sheet of paper is about 100,000 nanometers thick; a single gold atom is about a third of a nanometer in diameter. This course therefore engages students and campers in nanoscale science, engineering, and technology with several hands-on activities ranging from Transmission Electron Microscopes to the material science of Graphene.
