The CTE Resource Center is a public service created by the state of Virginia to support "career and technical and occupational-technical preparation programs by providing resources for curriculum development and program design." The Center's broad website provides a number of topical sections that deal with subjects such as biology, green technology, cooperative education, and cyberethics. The nanotechnology area in particular provides several dozen resources that deal with this rapidly growing field of technology. The materials here are divided into three areas: Careers in Nanotechnology, Classroom Resources, and Basic Concepts, Research, and Applications. The Classroom Resources section contains a range of useful items, from the 27-minute film "When Things Get Small" (about the quest to create the smallest magnet ever known) to a set of classroom materials on nanotechnology from the University of Wisconsin. Moving on, the Careers in Nanotechnology is quite useful as well, as it features online job centers dedicated to the field and links to the National Nanotechnology Initiative's Workforce and Training site.
