National Nanotechnology Day provides a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness about a tiny science that enables incredible scientific advances that enrich our daily lives.
is nanotechnology, and how small is it? Nanotechology
is the study and manipulation of matter at incredibly small sizes. “Nano” means
a billionth of a meter. To put that in perspective, the tip of a ballpoint pen
is about 1 million nanometers wide. Hence, a nanometer is much smaller than the
human eye can see.
is nanotechnology important? Using
nanotechnology, scientists and engineers can create new materials, products and
devices, and technical advances that yield life-changing results. This
amazingly tiny science is at the forefront of some extraordinary innovations in
healthcare, technology, and building and construction.
are a few ways nanotechnology is changing our world in 2019:
for more ways to celebrate nanotechnology?
The National Nanotechnology Initiative plays a critical role in coordinating research,
investments and education efforts across the federal government. To celebrate
National Nanotechnology Day, the National Nanotechnology
Initiative and several schools, labs and organizations nationwide will be
holding events to commemorate the date, including a challenge to run a 100 Billion Nanometer Dash (equal to 100 meters) and a series of podcasts featuring
stories from the National Nanotechnology Initiative. A full list of events can
be found on the official NNI website and on the organization’s Twitter page, @NNInanonews.
efforts, the American Chemistry Council’s (ACC) Nanotechnology
Panel is at the forefront of guiding
the responsible development of nanotechnologies domestically and
internationally and providing a scientifically sound approach to nanotechnology
