Welcome to NNCI Learn and Explore

NNCI Education and Outreach

The 16 sites of the NNCI are dedicated to addressing the explosive growth of nanotechnology and its need for a skilled workforce and informed public by offering education and training to individuals from young schoolchildren through adults.  Each site provides resources, programs, and materials to enhance an individual’s knowledge of nanoscale science and engineering and its application to real-world issues. We believe that a strong US economy requires at STEM-literate workforce ready to meet the technological challenges of a nano-enabled economy as well as an informed citizenry that supports continued and safe growth of nanotechnologies.
