Abstract:
Futurists predict that nanotechnology will be the next major scientific revolution -- one with an
even greater impact than the Industrial Revolution. Using Nanoscale Science, a new book from NSTA Press, teachers can help middle and high school students understand the big implications of this tiny technology.

New Book from NSTA Press Inspires Students in Small Ways

ARLINGTON, VA | Posted on April 11th, 2007

Using guided inquiry with open-ended exploration, science teachers will
find the book's 20 investigations fun and inspiring for students to learn
about the unique properties and behavior of materials at the nanoscale --
one-billionth of the size of a meter. The activities are organized around
five themes:
-- size and scale,
-- tools and techniques,
-- unique properties and behaviors,
-- nanotechnology applications, and
-- societal implications.
All activities use readily available materials and provide clear
background, instructions, and formative assessments.
With such remarkable and versatile technology already in use today,
what new uses will tomorrow's scientists (today's students) think of next?
As with most NSTA Press titles, you can browse sample pages of this new
title
free at the NSTA Science Store Website at http://store.nsta.org/ .
For additional information visit http://www.nsta.org/pressnew . The
160-page
book is priced at $24.95 and discount-priced for NSTA members at
$19.96.
