Meet The NanoPutians

from the things-to-do-with-chemistry-when-you're-bored dept

Roland Piquepaille writes “In “NanoKids made in lab,” Nature writes that “man-shaped molecules help students learn chemistry.” “A team of Texans has created molecules in their own image. The tiny army of human lookalikes is helping Houston kids to learn about chemistry. The researchers call their molecules the NanoKids. Their bodies are made from carbon and hydrogen, and their eyes are oxygen atoms. Each stands just 2 nanometres tall.” The Texan team has produced a DVD filled with the NanoKids to teach chemistry to young students. My blog contains other links to the project and pictures of some of the NanoKids, like the NanoTexan, the NanoTeen or the NanoScholar molecules.” How long until we have the Saturday morning cartoons featuring the NanoKids?
