California teens use Rice's NanoKids for virtual nanotech training
A team of "virtual" teachers developed by a Rice University nanotechnology researcher are going to help some of California's brightest high school students design, build and test new structures, one atom at a time.
The NanoKids and "nanocar" are key components of the curriculum when students report for the Nanotechnology and Robotics class at the California State Summer School for Mathematics and Science (COSMOS) on July 9 at the University of California, Santa Cruz.
