African-American achievers in modern science

Now Dr. Culpepper is figuring out how to make machines that build tiny things made up of moving parts as small as atoms and molecules. He calls these "super-precise machines," as they need to be able to pick up something as small as a molecule and position it precisely into place.

This is called "nanotechnology," the science of developing materials at the atomic and molecular level. Imagine a very powerful computer so tiny you can't see it without a microscope.
