General Introduction to Nanotechnology

This is an 80 second movie clip. The camera zooms in from a computer to molecules with a narration. The design goals are - Give a smooth introduction to nano-world - Deliver ideas of how small nano-scale objects are with a zoom-in - Inform that nanotechnology is related to everyday things.

A Nano-Introduction to Nanotechnology
Author: Barbara Liang - Fox Valley Technical College
Technician: TeeJay Spilman   Date: 3/21/2005
Description: In this animated object, learners read about the uses of nanotechnology. The sciences, engineering, electronics, and other disciplines converge in nanotechnology. Examples are given for applications in manufacturing, biomedicine, and environmental science. Concerns about possible environmental effects are discussed. An Introduction to Motor Proteins and Nanotechnology
Author: Barbara Liang - Fox Valley Technical College
Technician: Amy Bodoh   Date: 5/21/2007
Description: In this animated object, learners consider how nanoscientists are mimicking intracellular movements when building nanobots.

Nano/Bio Connection

Nanotechnology is not just a topic for physicists, chemists, and engineers. Laura explains the important role of biologists in this field, and shows how they may help provide clues to molecular assembly techniques.

Nanosolutions to the Water Problem
Author: Barbara Liang - Fox Valley Technical College
Technician: Gayla Ross   Date: 6/1/2005
Description: Learners read about how universities, government agencies, energy companies, and nanotech firms are working together to use nanotechnology to help produce clean water for consumption. Nanotechnology: In the Beginning
Author: Weldon Faull - Northeast Wisconsin Technical College
Technician: Aaron Byrne   Date: 9/27/2005
Description: Learners listen to a lecture given during the early days of nanotechnology titled, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom.” Dr. Richard Feynman made the presentation to the American Physical Society on December 29, 1959. Animation makes this lecture fun to absorb. The Cell Membrane and Nanotechnology
Author: Barbara Liang - Fox Valley Technical College
Technician: Gayla Ross   Date: 8/12/2005
Description: In this animated activity, learners examine nanotechnology applications that are based on cell membrane structure and function.
