Funding of development and implementation of nanotechnology experiences into the undergraduate curriculum has been increasing in recent years due to the expectation of the enormous impact nanotechnology research will have on the future workforce and the need for understanding of nanotechnology concepts by the general population. This symposium series book describes various course and curricula modifications being incorporated by institutions as well as specific laboratory experiences appropriate for undergraduates. Also included is an introduction to techniques necessary for characterization of materials at the nanoscale.
