Nano Education Website

There is an absolutely fantastic or at least hilarious website that is intended to offer free interactive nanoscience education to kids. It feels like the site would be appropriate for ten year olds but the content seems to be closer to the highschool level. It reminds me of the Nickelodeon website. One section of the site has baseball card style profiles of famous nanoscientists and describes their pedigrees.

I would not be surprised to hear that few teachers make use of resources like this. I often moan about how LOGO, perhaps the best teaching tool ever invented, is no longer used in most of the Kindergarten through Third Grade classrooms where it belongs.
