The Nano-Link Center began in the fall of 2008 and is a collaboration involving 11 educational institutions.

Nanotechnology, dealing with materials at the molecular and atomic level, is multi - disciplinary and will impact dozens of market segments.

This expansive scope drives the need for nano savvy employees in biotechnology, material science, photonics, energy, electronics and many other areas.

Our goal is to promote nanotechnology education at multiple grade levels by providing comprehensive resources for students and educators. These resources are supported by hands on educator workshops and on-line content and activity kits.

We work with various industry partners to ensure our curricula help students gain skills, knowledge and abilities required to support the economic growth of companies involved in nanotechnology.

We also support informal education by providing demonstrations and exhibits to civic organizations, high schools and museums.
