Provision seeks to help colleges, high schools buy nanotechnology equipment through grants

Abstract:
U.S. Senators Ron Wyden (D-OR), John Kerry (D-MA), Gordon Smith (R-OR) and Mark Pryor (D-AR) have successfully added a provision to U.S. competitiveness legislation to authorize the use of National Science Foundation grant funds to acquire nanotechnology equipment and software designed for teaching students about nanotechnology in the classroom.

"I have seen the nanotechnology equipment that folks will be able to use these funds to purchase, and it will help attract talented young people to nanotechnology in Oregon and across the nation," said Wyden, Co-Chairman of the congressional Nanotechnology Caucus.

"We have seen first hand in Massachusetts how much promise the field of nanotechnology holds," Kerry said. "This is a victory for innovation - good for students and good for science. I'm thrilled with this achievement and I thank Senator Wyden for his leadership."
