If You Were a Nanometer Tall, How Long Would It Take to Walk Across a Dollar?

October 06, 2017

Dr. Nancy Healy has spent over a decade sharing her enthusiasm for nanotechnology with students, teachers, and the public. In this episode of Stories from the NNI, she chats about why we need a nano-literate public, the skills future scientists need, and how the National Nanotechnology Coordinated Infrastructure is a “one-stop shop” for nanotechnology. She also discusses National Nanotechnology Day on October 9th (for 10-9, of course). Do you know how quickly you can run 100 billion nanometers? Nancy asked the Georgia Tech mascot to find out.
