The NanoZone is both a website and a permanent exhibition at UC Berkeley's Lawrence Hall of Science. The exhibition introduces basic nanoscale and state-of-the-art nanotechnology science to an 8 to 14-year-old audience. Content focuses on the smallness of a nanometer, scientists as people, applications, and links between nanotechnology and nature.
Nano Content Map
Nanometer-sized things are very small, and often behave differently than larger things do.
Scientists and engineers have formed the interdisciplinary field of nanotechnology by investigating properties and manipulating matter at the nanoscale.
Nanoscience, nanotechnology, and nanoengineering lead to new knowledge and innovations that weren't possible before.
