Hitachi and NNIN Cooperate on STEM Education

Dr. Nancy Healy is the Education Director of the National Nanotechnology Infrastructure Network, and she has been working closely with executives at Hitachi High Technologies America to bring the TM3000 to teacher conferences and into classrooms. According to Dr. Healy, nanoscience will be the next technological revolution, and it will impact nearly every aspect of our lives. Even though nanotechnology plays a key role in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases, the development of increasingly smaller smart telecommunications electronics and many other industries, it is a field that most students, teachers and adults know little about.
