TERC is committed to achieving this vision by improving mathematics and science teaching and learning. Our work in mathematics and science education includes research, curriculum and technology development, and implementation support in the form of professional development and assistance to districts and schools.
SAFENANO exists to help industrial and academic communities identify, assess and control the risks to their workforce, consumers, the general population and the environment, through both information provision and scientific services.
The National Nanotechnology Coordination Office (NNCO) provides technical and administrative support to the Nanoscale Science, Engineering, and Technology (NSET) Subcommittee, which mananges the National Nanotechnology Initiative--the program established in fiscal year 2001 to coordinate Federal nanotechnology research and development.
Research in the Center for Nanoscale Chemical-Electrical-Mechanical Manufacturing Systems (Nano-CEMMS) at the University of Illinois addresses a central problem in the development of nanotechnology: how to assemble structures at sizes smaller than can be seen (or transduced) and manipulated (or transcribed). The Center's goal is to develop a reliable, robust and cost-effective nanomanufacturing system to make nanostructures from multiple materials.
