The application of nanotechnology has enormous potential to greatly influence the world in which we live. The major challenge is to incorporate nanotechnology into our understanding of what it means to be scientifically literate. This is even more vital for that segment of our population that will move into the scientific and technical workforce in 5 to 10 years. This pilot program is developing course materials to be incorporated into existing high school science subjects as part of K12 Nanoeducation.
