Alice in Nanoland aims to explain the basics of nanoscale science by using examples accessible to early elementary students.
Nanoscale effects occur in many places. Some are natural, everyday occurrences; others are the result of cutting-edge research.
Many materials exhibit startling properties at the nanoscale.
Nanotechnology means working at small size scales, manipulating materials to exhibit new properties.
