Description
All digital resources for the Museum & Community Partnerships Explore Science - Zoom into Nano kit downlodable as Zip files. The Museum & Community Partnerships Explore Science - Zoom into Nano kits are designed to facilitate new or expanded collaborations with local community partners in an effort to engage underserved audiences about nanoscale science, engineering, and technology. Create new or expanded collaborations with a local community partner such as:. The Network will provide physical kits to up to 100 NISE Network partner institutions that apply and meet eligibility requirements (see below) and are selected through a competitive review process.​

Objectives

Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
Nanotechnologies—and their costs, utility, risks, and benefits—are closely interconnected with society and with our values.
