For Children (5-8 years old)
  • Amazing things happen that are too small to see with just your eyes.
  • Scientists and kids can use tools to observe these small things.
  • Small things are made up of even smaller pieces.
  • There are many small things inside my body.
  • Nano is really, really small.
  • Create a context for future learning about Nanobiotechnology.

For Adults and Older Children
  • Scientists can interact with small things and are developing tiny tools to help my body.
  • I can understand relative sizes of different small things.
  • What scientists are doing is related to things I have already experienced.
