Nova: Making things Smaller

The PBS show Nova has created a new series of four hour-long introductions to exciting new developments in material sciences. David Pogue hosts the show in his quirky and engaging way. On January 26, they aired the Making Things Smaller segment. They introduce nano robots that will help doctors to treat patients. The segments support the work that we have started with ITeam on using smart phones and AppInventor to control Lego NXT robots. Initially, they provide video to the 'trailer.' But eventually they will provide the entire segment.

Watch the full episode. See more NOVA.

They also provide activity resources that we should explore. While we are waiting for the full video, we can use a selection they provide as resources for education.
