Nano matters

At the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) meeting this year, Anna Waldron, an education researcher developing a nanotech museum exhibit for 8-13 year-olds, briefed the audience on the results of a recent survey of young people. The good news: 17% more of the respondents were familiar with the term ‘nano’ than had been when she administered the survey back in 2004. The bad news: asked to say what ‘nano’ is, 17% referred to the iPod nano. And we have more for which to thank Steve Jobs, chief executive officer of Apple: while fewer kids confessed to having heard the term ‘nanotechnology’, those who did often explained it as the technology inside the iPod nano.
