Program gives teachers tiny tools

Abstract:
Leaders of the University of Illinois' nanotechnology department say a "teachers enhancement" program is starting to pay dividends in local classrooms.

The program is designed to bring cutting-edge nanotechnology concepts — the study and application of some of the planet's smallest known particles — outside of the laboratory and into young students' minds.

"It's a very different way of looking at science," said Polly Kroha, managing director of the Nano-Chemical, Electrical, Mechanical and Manufacturing Systems division at UI, "but the applications are really amazing. The idea is to get the research content out and actually into the curriculum."
