The National Science Foundation (NSF) estimates that the world will require 2 million trained nanotechnologists by 2015.  Currently, there are only 20,000 nanotechnologists worldwide, making the need for career training immediate.

Enter NanoProfessor a new program focused on educating students in the emerging field of nanoscience and preparing them for future careers in nanotechnology.  The program, which just launched at Dakota County Technical College in Minnesota, caters to biology, chemistry and physics students by providing a hands-on nanoscience education in a classroom setting.  

The NanoProfessor Program, including state-of-the-art equipment, proprietary curriculum and scholarships, can be implemented immediately at universities, colleges and high schools nationwide.  This program also provides community colleges an opportunity to take advantage of funding available through President Obama's recently announced American Graduation Initiative, to create innovative programs for their students, while taking a proactive approach in training the workforce of the future.
