This web module from Virginia Tech creates an opportunity for teachers and students to learn about "cutting-edge" scientific research. In this project, an interdisciplinary team of science and math teachers and university scientists is studying nanoscale processes and science education. The result is the development of materials and resources that can be fit into secondary science or math curriculum. The web site includes links to related abstracts and nano sites, workshop results, and soon-to-be-available teaching materials.
