Richard Feynam's dream of the future of nanotechnology is the basis of this introductory course in which we will explore the history of nanoscale technologies and their development toward their current state of the art. A week prior to each class, students will be provided with the upcoming lecture presentation slides and notes to bring with them to class if they prefer. Thus, students will be free to listen and engage mentally, rather than being preoccupied with taking hand-written notes. Occasionally we may take a five-minute deep dive into “science stuff,” however a background in math/science is not required. Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion.
