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.
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.
