Peter D. Kazarinoff, Ph.D., Professor of Nanotechnology and Engineering, Canvas Network

Concepts in Nanotechnology is a six-week introduction to nanotechnology. The course is designed at a pre-college level, with no college level chemistry, math, or physics experience required. You will learn what nanotechnology is and what it means for something to be a nanomaterial. You will also learn about the applications and commercial products that use nanotechnology. This is an exciting opportunity to delve into the nano-world. Prerequisites: The course is taught entirely in English and aimed at a U.S. high school level. You need to be familiar with the basic concepts of chemistry, such as the theory of atoms and the periodic table of elements. Basic algebra skills, such as how to deal with equations containing variables, fractions, and exponents is necessary. No prerequisite knowledge in nanotechnology, materials science, or physics is required.
