Know your Nano

Abstract blue molecular nanostructure model

Nanotechnology is the name for making new things on an incredibly small scale. It is one of the most exciting and fast-moving areas of science and technology at the moment.

A few years ago I was asked to write a story book for children on the topic of nanotechnology. At that stage I knew nothing about the subject at all. I learned fast. Then it was a bit of a challenge to downscale the info to kids level.  Most of these questions can be answered by reading Sibo Sizes Things Up.

So don’t be too daunted if you are new to this subject. Have a bash anyway.

Lets see how much you know about nano?
