In this educational, animated movie, first, you’ll discover what nanotechnology is and learn about some of the events that jump-started its development. Next, you’ll find out some of the ways in which scientists hope to use nanotechnology to make our world better and cleaner–as well as how nanotech has progressed so far. Plus, you’ll find out about one important problem with nanotechnology. As the world gets smaller and smaller, you’ll want to keep up with the latest developments. Mini-me has nothing on this!
