Northwestern Receives $15M NSF Grant for Nano Learning Center

The National Science Foundation has awarded Northwestern University a five-year, $15 million grant to create the nationís first Center for Learning and Teaching in Nanoscale Science and Engineering (NCLT).

The center, under the direction of Robert P.H. Chang, professor of materials science and engineering, will develop scientist-educators who can introduce nanoscience and nanoengineering concepts into schools and undergraduate classrooms. Additionally, it will play the key role in a national network of researchers and educators committed to ensuring that all Americans are academically prepared to participate in the new opportunities nanotechnology will offer.
