I’ve been posting a lot lately about the lack of easily accessible public information on and public discussion of nanotechnology in Canada. In contrast, I bring to your attention two sites that offer a lot of information about opportunities to engage in the nanotechnology discussion, if you’re living in Europe and/or the UK.
There’s NanoYou courtesy of the European Commission. The page I’ve linked to has (if you scroll down slightly) a series of suggestions for activities you might like to engage in. (They co-produced the introductory video featuring Stephen Fry as the narrator, animations, and interviews with scientists from Cambridge University that I posted about April 30, 2010.)
The NanoYou page also provides links to other informational sites such as Nano & Me, a site that is courtesy of a group called Matter (they describe themselves as an ‘action tank’ and are located in the UK). The Nano & Me home page interface provides the standard navigational cues and images with rollover boxes that provide links to more information. e.g., if you roll your mouse over the part of the picture that has a woman, you’ll see a box with a paragraph about cosmetics. If you click in the rollover box, you will then be linked to more information about cosmetics and nanotechnology.
