New STEM Blended Learning textbook combining the geometry of mathematics required in K-5 and the tiny world of nanoscience. Visual and interactive elements show the movement of energy at the atomic level, where geometric shapes form the patterns in nature. Nanotechnology development is already changing our world in communication, enhanced materials, medical solutions, robotics, automotive, energy and space. Teachers and students can expand their knowledge with videos, including a classroom experiment with the graphite in a pencil. The graphene component of carbon (C6) is visible with the atomic force microscope (AFM) in the video of six atoms forming the hexagon shape at the nanoscale. Size matters in science and there are two interactive components that students can control, showing the scales of science from the universe down to the planck scale, based on the math of the power of 10. The book also includes links to the four 'NanoMission' educational games to introduce bio-nanotechnology and the future of medicine at the nanoscale of science. The Virtual Nano Lab at the University of Virginia (UV), provides hands-on experience with SEM, AFM, and STM microscopes online. The website has over 8 million global participants since it was introduced, and is one of the most important resources for all grades K-12. Introducing nanoscale science as the study of energy movement in nature that includes geometry, enhances the students ability to identify patterns and relationships, helping them to 'connect the dots' as they move into the higher grades. Nanoscale science unites physics, chemistry and biology with math and engineering, creating a comprehensive understanding of our world for their future. It will help teachers put the 'WOW' back into learning! STEM interactive learning creates a flow of information that informs teachers with visual elements, along with their students, eliminating the need for teacher training in the study of the nanoscale size of science in grades K-5. This foundation of knowledge from the 'bottom up' will challenge the creative minds of students, to desire more information in the higher grades. Understanding that scientists are also studying nature, and engineers are attempting to copy nature, will stimulate their curiosity in the future.

About Judith Light Feather

Judith Light Feather has traveled the world promoting nanoscience education since 2002. As President and Founder of The NanoTechnology Group Inc., she formed an advocacy group globally to introduce computerized education with interactive tools in classrooms for all students. This book represents and completes that mission. Developing these fantastic resources into a Blended Learning STEM book that can now be utilized anywhere, anytime by students, teachers and parents has been the primary goal. Teachers can find more information in the previous book: Nanoscience Education, Workforce Training and K-12 Resources. Judith has also been a contributing author to Nanotechnology Ethical and Social Implications: Khan, and Nanotechnology Business Applications and Commercialization: Sparks.
