Scaling Up Nanotechnology in Virtual Reality

Sometimes the smallest of things lead to the biggest ideas. Case in point: Nano 2020, a University of Arizona-led initiative to develop curriculum and technology focused on educating students in the rapidly expanding field of nanotechnology.

The five-year, multi-university project recently met its goal of creating globally relevant and implementable curricula and instructional technologies, to include a virtual reality classroom, that enhance the capacity of educators to teach students about innovative nanotechnology applications in agriculture and the life sciences.

The University of Arizona started the Nano 2020 project with funding from a National Institute of Food and Agriculture Higher Education Challenge grant. Read the full University of Arizona article.
