Ever been curious about how a real science project operates? What it's like working in a research lab? What happens when unexpected things happen? Ever wanted to get involved in cutting-edge nanotechnology research, meet the scientists, and be there when the latest discoveries are made? With nano2hybrids, for the first time this is possible. Over the coming 3 years, the key scientists involved in this European research project will be making video diaries and posting them on this web site, along with blogs of their work and lives. Watch the introductory video here.
The LSPM (Lego Scanning Probe Microscope ) team's goal is to teach a wide audience the underlying principles driving the world-wide interest in nanotechnology by creating FLASH animations geared toward all ages and illustrating how a scanning probe microscope can be used to study objects at the nanometer scale. This animation is part of a museum exhibit developed for Children's Museums. For more information about this exhibit please visit the Lego SPM website.
What could a stadium-sized bowl of peanuts, a shrinking elephant, and a crazed hockey player have to do with nanoscience? These are just some of the goofy excursions that await you in this irreverant, madcap, comically corny romp into the real-life quest to create the smallest magnet ever known.
