This article is a work in progress and does not represent a complete set of work accomplished. It represents only highlights.
In addition to a plethora of educational materials developed for several engineering courses we are in the final stages of creating the following course:
Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Introduction to Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is not only for undergraduate science, engineering and technology majors, but also K-12 educators and anyone interested in learning about Nanotech. The purpose of this course is to give you a broad understanding and a core set of vocabulary of the science and technology used in the creation and manufacturing of nano-enabled applications. This course is designed to appeal to a broad audience and will not require more than an algebra level of mathematics. The course is web enhanced, includes hands-on in class labs, topics on the key concepts of Nanotechnology, Micro/Nano applications, crystals, the many faces of carbon, and career pathways for the Micro/Nano technologist.
