Course description: Immerse yourself in the tiny world of nanotechnology, the manipulation of materials on the atomic and molecular level. This groundbreaking technology has applications in chemistry, biology, physics, materials science and engineering. In this course, you’ll investigate the power of nanotechnology by exploring new materials and building models to examine the way matter behaves when it’s 1/1,000th the size of a human hair! Talk with actual nanoscientists and nanoengineers, and possibly take a tour of the University of Washington’s Molecular Engineering Materials Center (UW MEM·C). Practice lab techniques with hands-on demos to understand and characterize unique nanomaterials, then present your findings and your experience with the scientific method to the rest of the class. 

Here’s a SNEAK PEAK of the curriculum!
