nanoHUB Education Page

Linked product
The site hosts a rapidly growing collection of simulation programs for nanoscale phenomena that run in the cloud and are accessible through a web browser. In addition to simulation devices, the NanoHUB education page provides online presentations, courses, learning modules, podcasts, animations, teaching materials, and more. These resources help users learn about the online simulation programs and about nanotechnology in general.

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.



NCN operates through funding provided by NSF. We received a five-year grant (EEC-0228390) for 2002-2007. This grant was renewed for another five years under a cooperative agreement (EEC-0634750). An associated National Middleware Initiative (NMI) NSF grant (OCI-0438246) for 2004-2007, along with a subsequent Software Development for Cyberinfrastructure (SDCI) NSF grant (OCI-0721680) for 2007-2010, has provided middleware developed and used on Enhancements to simulation results delivery are developed under the NSF grant (OCI-0944665) "Instant-On Simulation Delivery: Helping TeraGrid Achieve Its Wide and Open Strategic Goals." An associated NSF grant (OCI-0749140) entitled "Accelerating Nano-scale Transistor Innovation though Petascale Simulation" enables us to develop OMEN for peta-scale computing as well as for immediate nanoHUB applications.
