VIEW PROJECT


Learning the Elements of the Nanoscale Sciences (LENS) is an educational environment designed to illuminate the science behind nanotechnology. A series of interactive modules introduces students in the first-year General Chemistry lecture and lab course to the nanosciences using the example of the developming of lighting technology from the incandescent bulb to the light-emitting diode (LED). The exercises are designed to highlight the interplay between the understanding of science and new technological inventions. This project is supported by the National Science Foundation.
