The NanoProfessor marketing team will respond quickly to all requests.
According to the Partnership for a New American Economy, a bipartisan group dedicated to finding jobs for Americans, there are five times as many non-STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) graduates than STEM graduates in the U.S. Additionally, the growth rate of American students majoring in STEM fields is among the slowest of any category.
"Now that ‘Introduction to Nanoscale Science and Technology’ is available on Amazon.com, undergraduate students and industry professionals can independently learn about working at the nanoscale," said Dean Hart, chief commercial officer of NanoInk, Inc. "Readers will benefit from an allstar team of industry and educational experts who have been provided a comprehensive examination of nanotechnology and its applications."
The 255-page textbook covers the topics of Nanotechnology Instrumentation, Imaging and Nanofabrication Techniques, Nanophysics, Nanochemistry, Nanobiology, and Perspectives on Environmental, Health, and Safety within nanotechnology. Excerpts are available on the NanoProfessor website.
The textbook was written collaboratively by nationally recognized nanotechnology subject matter experts including:
- John Ireland, Ph.D., Program Director for NanoProfessor Nanotechnology
- Todd Crane, Ph.D., Chemistry Teacher at Bergen County Academies
- Richard Holz, Ph.D., Professor and Chair of the Chemistry Department at Loyola University of Chicago
- Steve Lenhert, Ph.D., Assistant Professor in the Department of Biological Science and Integrative Nanoscience Institute at Florida State University
- Deb Newberry, Director of the Nanoscience Technology Program at Dakota County Technical College.
In just over 24 months, the NanoProfessor Nanoscience Education Program has been chosen to serve as the foundation for undergraduate hands-on nanotechnology education by over 20 educational programs in five countries. The NanoProfessor Program alternates between classroom lectures and exciting, hands-on nanoscale lab work. In conducting the hands-on lab experiments, students learn the fundamentals for building custom-engineered nanoscale structures while working with state-of-the-art, nano-centric instrumentation including NanoInk's NLP 2000 Desktop NanoFabrication System, the first desktop nanofabrication system allowing students to quickly and easily build custom-engineered nanoscale structures with a wide variety of materials from biomolecules to metal nanoparticles using NanoInk’s proprietary Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®).
