Clean rooms keep out tiny particles and chemicals, allowing nanoscientists to study and make things that are too small to see.
Nano is very, very small.
Nanoscientists study and make things that are too small to see.
Tiny particles of dust and chemicals can cause big problems when studying and making nano-sized things.
Some nano labs are clean rooms.
Clean rooms have a controlled environment to control particles and chemicals.
Scientists who work in clean rooms use special equipment and materials and wear special clothes.
