A nanometre is one-billionth of a metre – the scale that scientists measure atoms and molecules on. Nanotechnology is the study of the properties and behaviour of particles at a nano-scale. SHINE is a Melbourne-developed nanotechnology education resource designed to inspire teachers and students about science and technology in 2008 and into the future.  SHINE is dynamic and interactive, with regular updates to reflect and include new research and industrial applications of nanotechnology, particularly those in the Victorian arena.  To keep up to date with more ‘nano’ news from Melbourne, check out the Nanovic Website.
