This manuscript describes the outcomes of and materials for undergraduate and graduate courses on Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM). The courses have been well received by students, almost half of whom go on to use their AFM skills in subsequent studies or professions. Course materials
for labs and in-class exercises are available upon request from the author in order to promote further development of AFM courses at other institutions. It is hoped that more AFM courses will draw more students into the intriguing world of nanoscience.
