"Sparking the imagination of kids about the possibilities of technology is so important," says the author, Marlene Bourne. "The book 'MEMS and Nanotechnology for Kids' aims to inspire boys and girls alike to pursue the study of science, technology, engineering and math by showing the direct impact these fields have on things kids use or interact with on a daily basis."

'MEMS and Nanotechnology for Kids' is written for middle school students ages 11-14, although younger children and adults alike may also benefit from the easy-to-read explanations. With nearly 80 color photos, the 32-page book explores what readers can find at the micro- and nano-scale, and then describes how various MEMS devices and nanomaterials are being put to use in all kinds of products. It's an ideal companion to the more in-depth book, A Consumer's Guide to MEMS and Nanotechnology, which provides greatly expanded discussion and hundreds of examples in the same reader-friendly format.
