The Exploring the Nanoworld web site offers instructional materials on nanotechnology, a science and technology based on the control of matter on the atomic or molecular scale. The site introduces the nanoscale (a nanometer equals one-billionth of a meter) and provides personal profiles of some of the scientists who work in nanotechnology. It offers an extensive selection of curriculum materials, including lesson plans, courses and units, lab exercises, demonstration movies, and slides. The site also provides video labs, featuring activities supported by movies, at basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. There is also information on kits and prop boxes that can be ordered, and information on the outreach activities of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Materials Research Science and Engineering Center, the sponsor of the site.
