A short introduction to nanotechnology, and why you should care about it.

The video dives into materials science and advanced materials, and looks at how designing and engineering substances from the atoms they're made of upward allows novel properties to be developed and used. It also looks at responsible innovation when it comes to grappling with the benefits as well as the health and environmental risks of nanoparticles and nanomaterials.

Stand-alone copies are available on request from Andrew Maynard at Andrew.maynard@asu.edu
