NanoCommunity is a learning activity where students work together to explore different ideas surrounding the topic of nanotechnology. Students will brainstorm different ways that nanotechnology has affected their lives and other possible applications and issues surrounding it. By the end of the activity, students should be able to understand that different communities use the same technologies in different ways and should be able to define nanotechnology and describe some of its present uses.
