Resources for Education

Curricula, Instructional Videos, Animations and More...

Nanoscience Instruments has worked with teachers, instructors, and professors for over a decade to help teach nanotechnology in the classroom. Whether in high school, community college or university, hands-on experiences in the lab engage students so they are more likely to retain interest in science and enginnering. 

We share resources here that can be applied in your classroom lab. We can connect you to others who are working to inspire their students too. If you don't see what you need or want more information, please call us at 480.758.5400.
