Technical tutorial on nanotech needed

from the newbies-wishing-to-be-oldbies dept.
Folks, we need to do a good web-based tutorial on nanotechnology, unless there is already one out there. –CP
AmarShibli writes "I am a high school student interested in nanotechnology. I have chosen this as the topic for my Intel-Westinghouse project. So far, on the internet, I have only been able to find very vague articles on the prospects of nanotech, and no specifics on how things are done and current research, tools of research, etc. I was hoping, since you all seem to know so much about this subject, that you may be able to inform me of a place where I can get more technical information, and I can really begin to understand it much better. My physics teacher is willing to help me with anything that I don't understand from the material I read, and if he doesn't understand it, there is a professor I can call. Also, my school is willing to pay for any restricted-access websites or books that I might want to invest in. Thank you for your help. Please e-mail me at [email protected] if you have any information, or just reply to this message. Thanks again. –Amar" If your info will be useful to others, please post it as replies here rather than sending email. –CP

Steve Lenhert writes "I am trying to find out how nanotechnology curriculum is actually going to be implemented in varous levels of education. From the US Nanotechnology Initiative, I've noticed that the first deliverable goal proposed is,

Begin augmented research and development in fundamental research, grand challenges, infrastructure, education and nanotechnology societal impacts in response to open competitive solicitations and regular program reviews

Steve is the Nanotechnology Guide at; one of the resources he maintains there is his guide to nanotechnology education.

College majors for aspiring nanoengineers?

from the brother-could-use-paradigm dept.
bacteriophage writes "I have already read over "Studying Nanotechnology" by Eric Drexler, which is an excellent resource, but it may be slightly outdated. Even if this is not the case, is there anyone out there who knows of similar sites in terms of advocating certain courses of study in order to become a nanoengineer, or anyone who currently works in the field and would like to provide info on their own educational backgrounds, what they had to go through, etc.? Thank you very much."

This is a perennial topic. At the graduate level, more and more universities are hosting nanoscale research programs (though doctoral students participating in such research could emerge with Ph.D.'s in anything from materials science to computational chemistry). What is the current best practice in terms of undergraduate study?
