Abstract:
NanoSonic developed a free nanotechnology coloring book to provide teachers with a resource for helping young students better understand the world of nanotechnology. This coloring book contains pictures and text related to nanotechnology on about a US fifth grade science and math level. Most of the images appear as abstract art. Students can let their imaginations run wild because most images of the nano world are taken with an electron microscope in black-and-white; researchers then apply their own colors to make them interesting and show special features.

Some of the images in the coloring book are based on Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) photographs by NanoSonic research scientists Lee Williams and Liz Gladwin; they show materials developed in our laboratories. Other images are from around the world. All images are identified with a credit line. If applicable, each image includes an approximate measure in nanometers, for reference, as well as a question related to grade level science and math.

This coloring book was funded in part by NASA. It was designed by Robin Rogers, Andrew Teates and Sally Green of NanoSonic, Inc. It was reviewed by Virginia public school teachers Brandi Smith of Macy McClaugherty Elementary/Middle School in Giles County and Susan Mauney of Blacksburg Middle School in Montgomery County. The cover illustration was created by Sally Green based on a NanoSonic SEM image by Lee Williams.
