Science of the small inspires big dreams

Abstract:
Star Trek, X-Files and Terminator sequels - for the past 10 years, nanotechnology has starred in some of the most action-packed, science fiction thrillers. Even Michael Crichton's latest novel, "Prey," features villainous, albeit fictional, microscopic robots. But where Tinsel Town sees trendy plot devices, scientists see a golden future. But it won't be today's white-coated scientists and rumpled engineers who bring the nanodream to fruition. It will be today's teenagers -- the targets of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory's latest educational outreach program.
