What is Nanooze? Nanooze is a magazine that has been created to get kids excited about science and especially nanotechnology–the science of really small things. Why? Because really cool things happen when you make things really, really small. The world that is too small to see is full of interesting stuff. Scientists and engineers are beginning to understand this world and learning how to change things at the nanoscale level.
What kinds of interesting things happen at the nanoscale?. Like gravity is hardly important and there is no color! But Nanooze is more than just nanotechnology, we will share with you a lot of interesting things that are happening in different fields of science.
Every week we will have new stuff and report on the latest developments in science. And we will have stories about real scientists and what they do. There is a place to ask questions and get some answers. We are supported by the National Science Foundation through the National Nanoscale Infrastructure Network and especially the Cornell Nanoscale Science and Technology Facility . Tell your friends about us and visit Nanooze often.
Carl Batt is a Professor of Food Science at Cornell University, but helped to start the Nanooze line of museum exhibits, print magazines, and web content. Folks in his research laboratory work on nanotechnology — making little devices to study biology. He has a B. S. degree from Kansas State University and a Ph.D. from Rutgers (which is in New Jersey). When he is not working, he is at home on a farm with horses, dogs, cats, and a talking bird named Miguel.
Emily creates distinctive graphics that teach, engage, and inspire for clients across the country. She has collaborated with museums, small businesses and educational institutions to devise graphic solutions for exhibitions, digital media, hands-on activities and marketing materials. Some of her clients include the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry (OMSI) in Portland, Ore.; the Exploratorium in San Francisco; the Sciencenter in Ithaca, NY; Science Museum of Minnesota; and Cornell University. She is responsible for all Nanooze graphic design. She works from her studio in Portland, Oregon.
