What is nanotechnology? A fifth graders' guide - Risk Bites Video

  • Image
The latest video from Risk Bites takes a four minute dive into what nanotechnology is, and why it’s important. It was created as a primer for 5th graders. A short, easy to understand, classroom-friendly introduction to nanotechnology - and why you should care. Note: This video refers to atoms as the basic building blocks of everything. This may make chemists and others a little uncomfortable, as most things are built up from molecules. However, because even molecules are themselves made up of atoms arranged in very specific ways, this atom-centric view of nanotechnology still makes sense - especially when introducing the underlying concepts at a basic level!
