(December 17, 2015) Stan Lee, the iconic co-creator of such legendary Marvel comic book characters as Spider-Man, the Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, the Fantastic Four, and the X-Men, championed the NSF- and NNI-sponsored Generation Nano superhero contest on his blog today. His involvement will draw attention to an NNI outreach project that aims to inspire students to learn about nanotechnology and the amazing capabilities enabled by this small science.

Generation Nano launched in November 2015 and is accepting submissions through February 2, 2016. Finalists will present their artwork at the USA Science and Engineering Festival in April 2016 in Washington, D.C. For more information on the contest, visit the contest announcement.
