Fairfax County Middle Schools to Enhance Students’ Understanding of Nanotechnology with Award-Winning Book

Scottsdale, AZ | Posted on June 11th, 2008

Bourne Research LLC today announced that Fairfax County Middle School Science has selected the award-winning book, MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids, to provide background knowledge on nanotechnology for their middle school students. Recipient of a 2008 IPPY Award for best juvenile/young adult non-fiction, the book was written to inspire kids age 11-14 about the possibilities of science and engineering.

"The book provides students with easy-to-understand text and many visuals that will help them understand the basic ideas pertaining to MEMS and nanotechnology," said Linda Peterson-Chin, Middle School Science Specialist for Fairfax County Public Schools.

MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids provides an introduction to today's coolest technologies. The 32-page book explores what we can find at the micro- and nano-scale, and then takes a look at the most common MEMS (micro-electro-mechanical systems) devices and nanomaterials; readers learn how they work and why they're useful in all kinds of everyday products - from bikes to video games.

"The reaction to this book, from kids and adults alike, has been phenomenal," said Marlene Bourne, President & Principal Analyst of Bourne Research LLC and the book's author. "It's so much fun to hear readers say ‘that's cool' and to know that this ‘wow factor' is increasing their curiosity about next-generation science, technology and engineering."

MEMS & Nanotechnology for Kids (ISBN: 9780979550560; Price $24.95) is available online at Amazon.com; signed copies of the book are available for purchase from Bourne Research. For details about bulk discounts, please contact Bourne Research at 480-695-0521.
