Our education programs strive to promote science education and awareness of nanoscience and nanotechnology throughout society, with a special emphasis on bringing diversity to the study and practice of science and engineering.


SNF's K-12 education programs focus on developing educational materials for students and professional development for science teachers.


SNF participates in the NNIN Research Experience for Undergraduates (REU) program each summer, which provides students with experience in cutting edge research and a taste of what graduate school is like.

Nanotechnology for Everyone
