Abstract:

As the Education and Outreach Coordinator for the U.S. National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network (NNIN), I am often asked why there is a need for "nano-education." Questions arise asking if nanoscale science and engineering is truly a separate field of study; are we creating another layer in our educational system, or can nanotechnology be infused into our current science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) educational system? These questions become particularly important when put in the context of the U.S. K–12 educational system, which already has content standards that must be addressed at each grade level.
