Science has always been the study of really big things, but a group of area teachers is challenging students to think small instead.
Eight Danville-area teachers are introducing nanotechnology into their classrooms, using hands-on experiments to teach students about the application of some of the smallest known particles on the planet.
"It's not in the future at all," said Lisa Burgess. "It's right here, right now."
The local classroom push towards the emerging science comes thanks to an innovative program at the University of Illinois, whose nanotechnology center has offered a two-week, summer teachers' camp through a National Science Foundation grant for the past four years.
